Faculty of Social Sciences: academic excellence awards

January 17th, 2019

The Faculty of Social Sciences has created a new honour — the Academic Excellence Awards.

The awards have been created to recognise exceptional achievement in the graduating classes in the Faculty of Social Sciences and to celebrate students’ well-deserved success.

The Undergraduate 2017/18 awards were given over the summer, and during December 2018 it was the turn of the Postgraduate Taught students.

Awards were made to postgraduate students who had achieved a Distinction overall and who were in the top 3% of the graduating class in their school. In total, 61 awards were given. The full list of winners is available here: https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/social-sciences/news/news/2019/faculty-excellence-award-prizes.aspx.

Just before the graduation ceremonies in December, Nottingham University Business School (NUBS) hosted an award ceremony evening attended by the winners, their supporters (family and friends), and representatives from the School and Faculty. Below are images of some of the award winners accepting their prizes from Professor Louise Crewe, AFPVC Education and Student Experience.

Following the successful introduction of the scheme in the Faculty, work is under way to establish the award scheme in each of the other faculties, in time for the 2019 graduation ceremonies this summer.
