Benefits

The final shortlist of ten students for each award are invited to the Awards event in London in April, where the winners are announced. Prizes include work placements, exclusive overseas trips and much more.

The TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards are the only undergraduate awards in the UK and are widely recognised by graduate recruiters. Winning a TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Award – or being a finalist – often leads to a job offer. Those shortlisted have a recognised accolade to add to their CV and benefit from a networking day with top graduate employers.

Eligibility

To enter you must:

  • be an undergraduate student at any university in the UK
  • be in your penultimate year at university or your second year of a four-year/sandwich course
  • be on track to achieve a 2.1 or above
  • have a strong academic record pre-university
  • have the right to work in the UK after graduation
  • having a combination of academic excellence, the ability to pass a series of difficult online assessments, good written communication and, finally, the interpersonal skills necessary to compete with other students in assessment centres run by the sponsoring organisations.

You may well be eligible to enter more than one award but the rules of the competition mean that you can only enter for ONE award, so choose wisely. Read each entry page carefully to see which award you’re best suited for before you start the application process.

Application

The process starts online with the collection of basic personal information, three or four tests devised by CEB Talent Assessment™, and up to three questions posed by the sponsor (specific details can be found on the ‘How do I win?’ tab for each award). This phase can take around two hours but you don’t need to complete everything in one visit; you can save and come back at any time before the closing date in January.

The students who perform best in the tests and who best match the requirements of the sponsor are selected for the second stage, which often involves meeting other finalists at a sponsor-led assessment centre, as well as undergoing an interview. From there, the best ten students are then invited to the Awards event in London, where the winner is announced.
