Celebrating with our graduating students is always special and last week was no exception when we held our winter graduation reception.

Tutors, family and friends of our graduands came together to enjoy a glass of bubbly and some canapés at The Everyman Theatre Bar. Head of School, Professor Lin Foxhall, opened the reception and a prize giving was led by Professor Elaine Chalus and Dr Diane Urquhart awarding three special graduands.

Edmund Mustill was awarded the AR Myers Prize for achieving the best results in the final examinations for the degree of Master of Archive Administration

Ashleigh Hawkins was awarded the Eleanor and Reginald Allan Scholarship for 2015/16. The Scholarship is awarded to students accepted onto the Postgraduate Archives programme judged to be the most promising as a professional archivist. 

Seamus May was awarded the Irish Studies Prize for the Best MA Dissertation, after acheiving a mark of 80% for his dissertation on James Joyce.
