School of Life Sciences students Annie Hackland and David Stone have been named in the Highly Commended Entrants category in the 2019 Global Undergaduate Awards (UA).

The UA, the world's leading undergraduate awards programme, assembles a panel of experts from around the globe to assess the competition entries, and they have narrowed the field down to the very best submissions.

Highly Commended Entrants are ranked in the top 10 per cent of all submissions to their specific category, with each person on this list in the running to be the Global Winner of their category - to be announced on 16 September.

Head of School Professor Simon Guild said: "I am delighted to see our students winning recognition for their academic ability through receiving these international University Awards.

"It is very gratifying to see students from Life Sciences receiving such accolades and on behalf of the School would offer them our sincerest congratulations."

The UA Global Summit will take place in Dublin, Ireland between 11 and 13 November.
