On 21 April we welcomed 132 outstanding undergraduates to the East Wintergarden in Canary Wharf, London, for the 2023 targetjobs Undergraduate of The Year finals.
This year, we received a record breaking 5,000 submissions from more than 150 universities in fields such as construction and engineering; maths, physics and economics; law, and, for the first time, AI and Robotics. As ever, awards were also given to exceptional students in underrepresented groups, including those of black heritage, LGBT+ students, neurodivergent individuals, and young activists.
Back by popular demand, for the second year running, comedian and presenter Sue Perkins revealed the names of the 13 winners. Each of them was presented with an exclusive prize from one of our employer partners, including paid internships and opportunities to spend time with senior executives from our supporting organisations.
Huge thanks to this year’s partners: Aon, AECOM, BT Group, Clifford Chance, Clyde & Co, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Glencore, Ocado, Rolls-Royce, Sky and Skyscanner.
Simon Rogers, Chief Customer Officer at Group GTI said:
“The targetjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards show us that UK higher education continues to produce exceptional graduates with the academic and personal skills needed to be successful in work. The final ten from each category really are the best of the best, and we’re so excited to see where they go next. The sky’s the limit."
