Awards highlight world class ideas

Five students at the University have won Undergraduate Awards.

The international prizes recognise some of the most creative and nuanced academic ideas at undergraduate level across 25 disciplines.

Academic prizes

It felt like a real acknowledgement of my continuing academic commitment.

The successful Edinburgh students - studying a range of subjects including geography, languages and nursing - submitted an article they had written as part of their course.

The articles were judged by a panel of leading academics.

The winners’ work will be published in the UA academic journal, which is sent to university libraries across the world.

Award winners

The winning students will collect their award at a ceremony in Dublin on 18 November.

The successful students from Edinburgh are:

  • Shion Gosrani – Nursing & Midwifery
  • Sandra Lukic – Languages & Linguistics
  • Victoria Ponce Hardy – Earth & Environmental Sciences
  • Joe Thomson – Classical Studies & Archaeology
  • Helen Farrants – Chemical & Pharmaceutical Sciences

Valuable network

As part of their prize, winners are invited to a three-day networking event which aims to bring together some of the brightest and most innovative students in the world.

I am over the moon about the award, and I'm really looking forward to the conference and all the opportunities that it will bring.
