It is awarded on an annual basis to the best final year undergraduate student. The value of the prize is £1,500 and it will be presented at the relevant awards ceremony in the summer.


Open to final year undergraduate students.

Criteria for award

The nominated student should have demonstrated academic excellence, together with a contribution to the life, academic reputation and general work of the University. The Chancellor's Prize Committee will bear in mind the availability of other awards (academic prizes, sporting, musical and artistic awards/prizes and for service to the community); additionally, Officers of the Students' Union may already have been seen to be honoured by their election to these posts.

Supporting documentation and references from sources outside the nominee's Department will be accepted and considered by the Chancellor's Prize Committee in the selection process. Personal Tutors, Directors of Studies or Heads of Department/School of Management may be approached for further information before a final decision is taken.

Closing date

The deadline for 2020 prize nominations has now passed. Details of the 2021 prize will be available in early 2021.
