Despite lockdown third year students excelled and produced extremely impressive results.  In total there was seven students achieving a First-Class Honours degree.

Once again we are so proud of our students.  The students really embraced a new way of working during lockdown liaising with all staff remotely.  They worked extremely hard and their efforts have certainly been recognised with an extremely strong set of results across the student cohort.
