The Committee was impressed with the excellent academic results Luke had achieved throughout his degree programme, ranking 1st in his cohort every year and achieving the Dean’s List Award for “Best Performing Student” in both years 1 and 2. Luke’s voluntary work as Member, Treasurer and Chair of V Team, the University’s student volunteer group, as well as his role as Trustee for Bath Mind, was considered exemplary. Glowing recommendations from across the University community, as well as from the Board of Bath Mind, confirmed Luke to be a deserving recipient of this year’s prize.

Luke has displayed both exceptional academic strength and a breadth of campus and community involvement that is a great credit to himself and the University.
