The Deputy Principal’s Award – a student award for academic excellence – will be entering its second year in 2018/19. The criteria for the award are strictly drawn.  In 2018/19 the Award will be made to individual students who meet the following criteria:


  • Full-time undergraduate students studying on campus at any one of our locations.  Note:  you must be taking 8 courses totalling 120 credits and have begun your degree programme at a September intake.
  • Attain 6 Grade As with passes at Grade D or higher in the other courses, at the first sitting.
  • Students with any reassessments, course failures, or grade Es in the year are automatically disqualified from the award.
  • The rules will be adjusted for students with one semester’s absence for medical or personal reasons.


The Award

Any student meeting the criteria will receive a letter from Professor John Sawkins, Deputy Principal (Learning and Teaching) after the summer 2019 diet of examinations advising them of the award.  Academic Registry will maintain a list of award winners on behalf of the University.
