First-year Finance Student Liberty Godfrey wins Ewan Page Prize
The award, named after a previous Vice-Chancellor of the university, recognises three undergraduate part 1 students every year for having received the highest entry A-level grades in their year. The prize of £130 in book tokens assists new students in purchasing some of the books and other study related items needed for their studies.
“I… am honoured to be awarded the Ewan Page Prize,” commented Liberty, “When I received the email to say I had been awarded the prize for my A Level grades, I was shocked. I am very grateful for this surprise prize and the generosity of the Ewan Page Award.”
Originally from north Leicestershire, Liberty finished her A levels and then applied to study at University of Reading after a year of travelling and working abroad.
“I am really enjoying Reading University, I have made lots of new friends and am enjoying university life. The part of my course I like the most is the time we spend at Henley Business School in the dealing room, where we use virtual money to buy stocks and shares whilst reading the news and taking calls from clients. It’s going well, just a good job its virtual money, at the moment!”
