The Award ceremony for 2015-16 took place in the Thomas Paine Study Centre. Hearing from a range of Award students and employers, including HSBC, Banham Zoo and EPOS Now, the evening gave recognition to the achievements of the UEA Award's first cohort of students.
We also awarded four special prizes, in addition to giving student recognition for their completed Award levels:
- Alice Hayes - Outstanding contribution to campus life
- Cammeron Meades - Outstanding achievement in work or volunteering
- Sum Lai - Outstanding academic attribute development
- Laura Watson - Best reflective write up
We have included below some pictures from the event.
