This is an outstanding achievement at an international level, considering that the Undergraduate Awards (UA), the largest academic awards programme in the world, received 6,432 submissions from students in 299 Institutions across 47 countries this year alone. Sanja’s and Giorgo’s work was identified by the Undergraduate Awards as among the best undergraduate coursework globally.

As a Highly Commended Entrants of The Undergraduate Awards Sanja and Giorgos are still in the running to be the Global Winner of their category, which will be announced on September 19th. Our student and graduate have been invited to attend the UA Global Summit 2017, that will gather 150 of Highly Commended Entrants and Global Winners in Dublin, Ireland between November 7th-9th.

Sanja made her way to the top 10% of UA submissions in Economics with her paper entitled "Currency and Economic Crises: The Role of I.M.F. and the Exchange Rate Regimes" that she compiled as coursework for the module of International Financial Management led by Mr. Petros Golitsis, Lecturer at our Business Administration & Economics Department. It is worth noting that this is the second year in a row for Sanja to be shortlisted as ‘Highly Commended Entrants’ at the Undergraduate Awards, since last year she ranked in the top 10% submissions in the Business category.

Sanja commented: "This academic achievement in international scale is an auxiliary acknowledgement of the academic excellence, in-depth research and transfer of knowledge that the International Faculty CITY College provides to its students. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the University of Sheffield International Faculty, CITY College and the academic staff for their commitment to quality education and continuous development of their students. It was an honour for me to study in such an educational institution that fosters an environment where students acquire not only specialised knowledge, but also a strong basis for their personal, social and cognitive development. I am genuinely proud to be part of the International Faculty Alumni Network". 

Giorgos made it to the top 10% of UA submissions in Business by submitting a paper on ‘Financial Innovation and the Shadow Banking System’ under the supervision of Mr Michalis Samarinas, Lecturer at our Business Administration & Economics Department.

"I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Undergraduate Awards' committee for selecting me as Highly Commended in the Business Category. I am so humbled to have been nominated for this award knowing that there were many qualified applicants. After all, though, this award must not be acknowledged as an individual endeavor, but as a collective resolution brought about by the culture of excellence that the academic staff of the International Faculty CITY College advocates and thrives in. Along these lines, I would like to take the chance and thank all my lecturers that challenged me, pushed me beyond my limits and provided me with all the essential tools to become the best version of myself not only academically but also ethically. Thank you!" said Giorgos Ioakeimidis.

Sanja Arsova completed the BA (Hons) in Business Studies (Accounting & Finance), while Giorgos Ioakeimidis is at the third year of his undergraduate studies, attending the BA (Hons) in Business Studies (Accounting & Finance) at the University of Sheffield International Faculty in Thessaloniki.
