Once again UCL students have come out in force at the Target Jobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards with 6 shortlisted students and 2 winners!
These annual awards have 12 categories, sponsored by major employers, with each category having 9 or 10 shortlisted students. Prizes include work experience, international trips, i-pads and chances to spend time with top executives in the sponsoring company. Needless to say, they are very competitive – 3,553 students applied this year and after filling in the application form, they had to go through aptitude tests, an interview and assessment and a final centre.
UCL had 6 students shortlisted:
Daniel Mannion – Electronic Engineering with Nanotechnology (Engineering Undergraduate of the Year)
Benjamin Thomas – Electronic and Electrical Engineering (Engineering Undergraduate of the Year)
Vaibhav Bhatla – Computer Science (Future Business Leader of the Year)
Anna Tomlinson – German and History of Art (Languages Undergraduate of the Year)

“To be shortlisted for the Target Jobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards is a great achievement and congratulations go to Anna, Benjamin, Cara, Daniel, Harrison and Vaibhav. In addition, to have two winners is absolutely fantastic. The Undergraduate of the Year Awards are extremely prestigious and hopefully UCL’s performance this year will encourage other students to apply in the future.” -Karen Barnard, Director of UCL Careers.
