We take great pride in the achievements and successes of our alumni.

We encourage you to nominate your fellow alumni for these awards or alternatively, please let us know if you would like your name put forward for consideration.

The following list is by no means exhaustive. If you manage or know of other global alumni award programs for graduates who studied in Australia, please contact our alumni relations team at
