Three St Andrews History students shortlisted in The Undergraduate Awards

Undergraduate Awards logoThree St Andrews History undergraduates have been given awards in the highly commended category of the Undergraduate Awards and have been shortlisted for the overall 2013 Undergraduate Award. The School of History congratulates Nadia Knifton (Mediaeval History), James McDonald (Scottish History) and Peter O’Boyle (Mediaeval History) on their achievements.

The Undergraduate Awards is a prestigious and international academic awards programme, which is wholly pan-discipline. It aims to celebrate and support the world’s brightest and most innovative undergraduate students by recognising their best coursework and projects.

Winning a place on the shortlist means that Nadia, James and Peter were in the top 10% of all entrants to the Historical Studies category, which received 3,771 submissions from 182 institutions across 25 countries. The winner of the category will be announced on 20 September and will be flown to Dublin to receive their prize from the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny.

We wish Nadia, James and Peter the best of luck!
