Many congratulations to second-year DPhil student Andrew Cairns, who has been awarded a Senior Scholarship from Wadham College. There are just six such positions at the College across all disciplines so this is a fantastic achievement. The selection criteria from the College website are as follows:
Students already reading for a higher degree at Wadham will be judged on their progress on course. The criteria used will be subject and course specific but could include: examination grades, prizes, progress towards thesis completion, discoveries made, papers published or patents awarded, oral or poster presentations at national and international conferences.
This is fantastic recognition of Andrew’s continued hard work and success throughout his Part II and DPhil in the group. Andrew now receives a well-deserved prize of £500, and weekly senior dining rights. High Table watch out!
