In June 2021, the university marked its fourth annual UCL Alumni Volunteering Awards, which recognise outstanding alumni who generously give their time to support the UCL community.

This year saw the introduction of bronze, silver and gold categories, to acknowledge the many ways that alumni choose to volunteer.

The Gold Award for Alumni Volunteer of the Year was given to Sasha Shen (MA Higher Education Studies 2019, pictured above). By creating testimonial videos, taking part in case studies and speaking at events, Sasha has helped many prospective students feel informed about joining the UCL student body.

The Hong Kong leads for the Recent Graduates Network received the Gold Award for Alumni Group/Network of the Year. Set up in 2019, the UCL Recent Graduates Network supports the professional development of graduates up to ten years out. At a time when in-person events were not possible and Zoom fatigue was setting in, the Hong Kong leads launched an interactive video series, Industry Insiders, featuring UCL alumni demystifying popular industries.
