The 2015 Undergraduate Awards ceremony and formal dinner took place last night at Dublin City Hall and Dublin Castle. Twenty five of the world's best undergraduates were presented with their gold medals by Michael Higgins, The President of the Republic of Ireland.
This Irish-inspired competition aims to identify the leaders and creative thinkers of the next generation. This year there were submissions from 255 institutions in 39 countries around the world. The ceremony is a high point in a week-long gathering of the very best of these students in Dublin to collaborate and consider the world's problems. Their presence reflects praise on themselves and on the institutions of the Republic of Ireland and the administration of The Awards. The Undergraduate Awards are now the premier and largest undergraduate competition in the world.
