Prizes

A small number of College Exhibitions, comprising book tokens of £50 for each award, will be awarded annually to any student who has demonstrated particular academic excellence through the award of an external prestigious prize or similar recognition. This will normally have been reported by the student's supervisor in a termly GSS report or else directly.
