Sam scoops micro prize

Over the summer we have been able to get our module NS5203 Human Microbe Interactions registered as for suitable entry to the Microbiology Society Undergraduate prize.

The Society requires that the courses (in our case Biology and Animal Biology) have a significant microbial content, and they scrutinized our courses, modules and our nomination quite thoroughly. The winner of this prestigious prize will be nominated each year from the top scoring assessments. Each winning student will be awarded £200, a certificate and one year’s free Undergraduate Student Membership of the Microbiology Society.

We are really pleased to announce that the winner for 2014/2015 is Sam Barras.

“I approached the assessments by identifying the subject area that I found most interesting. This went on to form the foundation for the assessments and was made easy by the variety of topics covered over the course of the Microbe-Human Interaction module, which I found to be thoroughly enjoyable as a result. I was thrilled to be awarded the SGM undergraduate prize and I look forward to further expanding my knowledge in my final year whilst undertaking the NS6205 Microbial Biotechnology module.” Sam Barras, winner 2014/2015.
