Wednesday 4th November, 2015 at The Park Lane Hotel Piccadilly, London.

Here at UB magazine, we have identified that very few young people working in UK HE are being championed as they should be. So, this year we are launching the first Young Leaders Awards to recognise the inspirational and dedicated under-30s working at and with universities across the UK.

Entries will then be shortlisted by a judging panel, and winners will be announced at the awards evening
