What to know about Shine!

The International Student Awards 2010 is an exciting competition that celebrates the achievements of international students and their contributions to life in the UK. The Awards are run by the British Council, the UK's international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations.

By telling us about the things that make your time in the UK so exciting and rewarding, you can earn some well-deserved public recognition and prestige for your out-of-class achievements.

It’s easy to enter. Simply write us a letter telling us all about your time in the UK and how the UK has challenged and excited you. Our panel of judges – NUS representatives, education professionals and British Council colleagues – will choose the best letters to become shining examples of UK life for future international students.
