The University is proud of the achievements of its alumni and the 'Alumni Ambassador of the Year award is one of the ways we celebrate the difference our volunteers make in the UK and overseas.
It is awarded to the alumnus who has met the following criteria:
This year's award goes to David Allan (BA German Language & Literature 1985), who has been a tremendous supporter of the University over the last few years. He has assisted at many events including graduation receptions, open days and applicant days, and served as a member on the distribution panel for the Vice-Chancellor's Fund.
David said: "The best thing about coming back as an alumni ambassador is getting to meet a diverse range of people, including students, parents, staff, alumni and prospective students. There have been many changes since my days as a student, but it's the same old campus and it still feels like home to me."
