Congratulations to our Graduating Class of 2011
22 July 2011
We would like to offer our congratulations to our 2011 graduating class. This has been an exceptional year for the School of Chemistry with a very high proportion of degrees awarded in the first and upper-second degree classifications.
A number of students received prizes, supported either by the School of Chemistry or various external sponsors. We would particularly like to congratulate these students, and to thank the sponsors for making possible the award of prizes.
Paul Smith received the Tocris Prize for the best performance in year 4 of the MChem degree programme. Sabeeha Mughal received a Lloyds Banking group prize for outstanding performance in year 4 of the MChem. Tom Edwards was awarded a Royal Society of Chemistry prize for a similar distinction.
Three prizes were awarded for the research projects which are a fundamental aspect of our MChem degree programmes. These were Anwen Clementson, Tom Peskett and Natalie Harries. All of these prizes were supported by the Lloyds Banking Group.
The David Walsh prize for best performance by a student on the BSc degree programme was awarded to Laurence Clarke, while the prize for outstanding performance on the BSc programme, again supported by Lloyds Banking Group, was awarded to Rebecca Smith.
Research projects are equally important to our BSc programme, and the Lion Labs prize for best BSc project went to Oliver Stacey. The NIPA medal for best overall practical performance in the BSc programme was awarded to James MacDougall.
