Alumni Awards

The Study UK Alumni Awards (The “Alumni Awards”) are operated by or on behalf of the British Council to recognise and honour the outstanding achievements made by alumni who have studied at, or for a qualification awarded by, a listed or registered UK Higher Education Institution.

28 global finalists for 2023 have been selected and the winners will be announced in September. All winners and finalists are UK university alumni with outstanding success stories, representing 29 UK universities and 22 countries.

Dr. Lok Bhattarai, who graduated from Leeds Beckett in 2013 with a PhD in Health & Community Studies, is a finalist for the Business and Innovation Award which recognises alumni who are initiating and contributing to creative new ideas, solutions or business opportunities that have the potential for growth.

Dr Bhattarai influenced the national public policy landscape in Nepal substantially. In 2022, the government of Nepal invited him as an expert to work with senior political and administrative leaders (ministers and secretaries) for planning and designing the country's industrial development plan on entrepreneurship, innovation, productivity and international trade. Dr Bhattarai has published numerous op-ed articles on national issues in Nepal pertinent to economic development, social justice, entrepreneurship and higher education.
