Honours award

July 8, 2009

Congratulations to Mark Turner, who completed honours with the Centre in 2008, on winning one of only 18 University medals.

These are presented to the most outstanding graduates in each faculty who have completed the Honours degree, degree with Honours, or a degree of Bachelor of at least four years duration.

The Medals are awarded for outstanding academic performance across the whole of the nominees’ studies at university, and not for academic performance at the Honours level alone.

So congratulations again to Mark for his fantastic achievement.
