Victoria Babakhadjaeva, who previously worked as the Vice-Rector for International Relations at Tashkent International University of Education (TIUE), has won the Study UK Alumni Awards in the ‘Social Activity’ category in Uzbekistan.
The Alumni Awards recognise graduates of UK universities who have distinguished themselves for exemplary leadership and excellence in their careers. The Awards celebrate the distinctive qualities of British higher education and raise the international profile of UK university graduates.
Each year more than 1,500 applicants from over 100 countries apply for the international award. The national-level award is held in 18 countries only, including Uzbekistan. This is the second year the award is being held in Uzbekistan and has become an annual tradition for graduates of British universities wishing to be part of it.
The winner in the “Social Activity” category was Viktoria Babakhadjaeva, who is now an education specialist at the World Bank. Prior to that, she was Vice-Rector for International Relations at TIUE.
The Social Activity Award recognises graduates who have made exceptional contributions to creating positive social change and conditions to improve the lives of others.
“My MA in Banking and Finance from the University of Wales was informative and rewarding. The knowledge, skills and experience I gained at a British institution motivate me to provide access to high-quality education to as many people as possible by integrating UK educational standards into Uzbekistan’s educational system,” said Viktoria Babakhadjaeva.
