Prizewinners of 2011

5 August 2011

This year's graduation ceremony saw 18 final year students from Cardiff School of Biosciences collect a total of 21 prizes for their academic performance.

These prizes recognise our best graduating students across the range of degree courses offered by the School, including professional training with industry. In most cases, the prizes are accompanied by a small monetary reward, provided by our alumni, notable academics, Societies and industrial sponsors.  

Professor Ole Petersen the Director of School said "This year, as in many previous years, we had a substantial number of top performances in the School of Biosciences. It was a great pleasure to meet these outstanding prize-winners and to celebrate their great achievements."

Congratulations to all the students who were awarded prizes this year!
