External Prize Nominations
Each year, the Department also nominates selected students for the following awards which are organised by external organisations as European or UK competitions:
Science, Engineering & Technology Student of the Year (SET) Awards
These prestigious awards are sponsored by a panel of International Technology and Science-led companies and judged by representatives of the science and engineering-based professional bodies and associations across Europe. Awards are in several categories, including 'Best Chemistry Student'. We typically nominate three students in their final year who we judge to have performed exceptionally in both their final year research project and in examinations throughout their degree and who also display outstanding communication skills.
Salters Graduate Prize
These prestigious awards are presented by the Salters Institute to Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Students who will ultimately be able to occupy leading positions in the UK Chemical and allied industries. We typically nominate one student in their final year who has extensive industrial placement experience, often as the result of having carried out their final year research project at another University as part of our Chemistry with Research Abroad MSci Degree (F104, F101).
