Are you a UK Alumnus in Cyprus? The British Council has been honouring UK Alumni for decades. The picture shows a dinner organised by the British Council for UK Alumni and scholars in 1973.
Today we organise the Study UK Alumni Awards celebrating the outstanding achievements of alumni. Applications for the yearly awards are open during the fall welcoming leaders in their fields who have made a positive contribution to their communities, professions and countries to apply.
Currently there are 40,000 Cypriot alumni of UK universities, equivalent to about 1% of the population of Cyprus. The British Council works closely with the British High Commission on various events and activities, bringing together alumni from different UK universities and professional backgrounds.
So if you are a UK Alumnus in Cyprus contact the British High Commission to be involved in all activities, network and exchange experiences.
