Year Abroad Party and Dissertation Prizes

This Wednesday saw the School’s annual Year Abroad Party. This is a chance for our final year students who have just returned from their year abroad to meet students who will be heading to universities across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia and China in the next academic year

The event also saw the announcement of the Year Abroad Dissertation prizes, won by Otis Ingrams, Hamish Jackson and Thomas Buckley. Whilst passing on our congratulations to Otis, Hamish and Thomas for achieving the three highest dissertation marks of the year, it should also be noted that a number of our students produced excellent pieces of work and narrowly missed out on being amongst the prizewinners.
