Celebrating the achievements of alumni in China

When outstanding individuals receive a world-class education in the UK, the effects can last a lifetime. The Alumni Awards shine a light on the impact that alumni of UK higher education institutions are making in their chosen field, and how this was sparked by their studies in the UK.

The Professional Achievement Award, which recognises alumni who have distinguished themselves through exemplary leadership in their professional field, was presented to Dr Feng Gao. The Social Impact Award, which acknowledges alumni who have made an exceptional contribution to creating positive social change, was presented to Qing Gu, a graduate of the University of Oxford. The Entrepreneurial Award, which highlights alumni who have played a leading role in innovation or creative solutions, was presented to Yiping Xia, a graduate of the University of Essex.
