“Following the success we had last year, I am delighted to launch the British Council Study UK Alumni Awards for the second time in Jordan. We were impressed and inspired by the stories of our winners and finalists last year. Our Awards truly demonstrated how much talent there is in Jordan and it’s so fantastic to see how our UK Alumni have used their UK study and experience to make such as a positive impact in their community. We look forward to celebrating more achievements of Jordanians who have studied in the UK with this year’s Alumni Awards. So if you are one of them, please apply before the deadline.”
