For final year students, graduation is just over 9 months away. During that time, as well as receiving your degree you may be presented with an award for an outstanding project, performance in your course or dedication to the department. However, that does not mean that all the other years are simply ignored. Every year prizes are awarded to Foundation Year students and Years 1/2/3 for their hard work.
This year was no exception and on October 14th a group of staff and students gathered in C/1.09 to appreciate all those who were presented with the awards. Dr Alan Kwan, Director of Learning and Teaching, conducted the award ceremony.
The “Foundation School Prize” was awarded to Zainab Ali for outstanding performance during his foundation year.
