Student awards 2015

77 students from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, who are currently in their second and third year of studies, have been awarded a University of Westminster Achievement Award in recognition of their success in coming top of their undergraduate degree course studies last session.

The Faculty held a ceremony on 14 January 2015 to mark the occasion. Students and their guests were welcomed by the Dean of Faculty, Professor Roland Dannreuther and by Steven Anderson, Student Funding and Scholarships Manager. The students were then each presented with a certificate and a cheque for £1,000 by their Head of Department and the Dean.

Students’ family and friends attended, some flying in from abroad for the event, and academic staff were also present to share in their students’ success. This occasion was much enjoyed by all and was followed by a celebratory drinks reception. The University of Westminster offers the largest scholarship programme of any UK university – more than £4m last year – to UK, EU and international students.

Further details of our scholarships scheme can be found on our scholarships pages.
