Businesses, HR teams, careers services and universities are encouraged to showcase their achievements in the postgraduate arena as the second annual Prospects Postgraduate Awards open for entries.

This year there are ten categories, with new awards for ‘Best Careers and Employability Team’ and ‘Outstanding Contribution’, which recognises an individual that has made a significant and outstanding contribution to postgraduate education.

Entries are open until Friday 5 September 2014 and the winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony in November at The Midland Hotel, Manchester.

Entry is online and more information can be found at or follow us for updates on Twitter @postgradawards.

The Awards are run by Graduate Prospects, the UK’s leading postgraduate education publisher, and sponsors include University Business.

Mike Hill, chief executive at Graduate Prospects said: “Anyone who has an impact on postgraduate education in the UK is recognised in these awards; from the businesses forging ties with their local institutions, and the media and marketing agencies that drive the campaigns to the universities themselves who are wholeheartedly and creatively attracting postgraduate talent.

“That’s why we have introduced a category specifically for careers services this year; to reward those who facilitate work-related learning opportunities for postgraduates.

“Last year we were impressed by the originality and innovation demonstrated across the UK and we look forward to welcoming this year’s entrants.”
