Rare Rising Stars 2022


Are you a Rare Rising Star?

Rare Rising Stars allows us to recognise and celebrate extraordinary candidates. Each year, we showcase the achievements of the best Black students in the UK. Since the development of Rare's Contextual Recruitment System (CRS), we have been fortunate enough to be able to shine a light on all over-achievers by setting each candidate's achievements in context. We are delighted to now be recognising the achievements of more candidates, on a wider scale.

We are privileged to encounter incredibly high achievers on a day-to-day basis and work with clients who really care about changing the face of their sectors. We are also fortunate to work with ambitious students at the beginning of their journey into university and the world of work.

Now in its fourteenth year, we are once again pleased to be searching for the extraordinary stories of our next Rare Rising Stars. These are stories of ambition, resilience and passion that we hope will continue to inspire future generations of Black students to contribute to their communities and pursue their dreams.

To learn more about last year's Stars, you can download the full Rare Rising Stars 2021 publication below.

If you know of an inspirational, outperforming, Black, UK undergraduate or postgraduate student, please check their eligibility here and nominate them here. Students are also permitted to nominate themselves.

The deadline for nominations has been extended to Wednesday 1st June 2022, 11.59pm.
