This year’s Words Matter Prize has been awarded to BA English Literature & Film Student Liam Durbin. The prize recognises outstanding academic achievement by students completing the first year of their degree.
Level Four co-ordinator Dr Fraser Mann says that:
“Liam’s dedication to his studies and his participation in university life are admirable. He has made rapid and remarkable progress in his studies and deserves real recognition for this success.”
On receiving news of the award, Liam said:
“Receiving the Words Matter Prize genuinely means the world to me. A few years ago, just being able to study at university was something that felt beyond me entirely, so to receive this now is simply incredible. I feel endlessly grateful to every lecturer, tutor, friend and family member that have helped get me through university so far. Thank you so much.”
Liam will receive his award during this year’s Words Matter Lecture. We would like to congratulate him on his success and wish him all the best for the rest of his degree
