How do we choose our winner?
Winners are chosen entirely at the discretion of the individual department. The prize can reward achievement in experimental work or exams, or general improvement in studies. If departments prefer, the prize can be split between two exceptional students.
What will our winning student receive?
When you inform us of the name of the winning student we will write to them enclosing a certificate and a copy of our latest catalogue, along with a letter explaining how they can claim their prize. The student then selects books to the value of £150 which will be dispatched to them (or to the university if you would prefer to formally present the student with their prize).
Is there a deadline for nominations?
The prize is only awarded to each institution once annually, but your department is free to choose at what point in the academic year you make your nomination.
