2013年3月14日

ケント大学学生が、王室化学協会the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)による名誉ある賞二つを同時受賞しました。

本学の物理科学課程最終学年のCharlie Posseeさんが、RSCによる分析化学のthe best Royal Society of Chemistry Prize 及びthe Harry Shalgosky Awardの二つを同時に受賞しました。The Analytical Chemistry PrizeはRSCに加盟する各大学の学生一人に贈られますが、the Harry Shalgosky Awardは、同賞の受賞者の中から全国でただひとりに贈られる名誉ある賞です。

The Harry Shalgosky prize is awarded to a winner of the Analytical Chemistry Prize - an award given to one student at each participating University for their outstanding overall performance in the subject. All the winners from the University’s Analytical Chemistry prize are then put forward for The Harry Shalgosky prize. The winner is the student who records the highest examination score.

Charlie, 20 from Ashford in Kent, receives £950 from the prizes, sponsored by the Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund for the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Charlie Posse said: ‘I was absolutely thrilled to have won these awards; they were such a surprise, especially as I haven’t studied Chemistry at A-Level. The money is great, but more importantly is was just nice to get some recognition for all the hard work I put in last year, and an excellent CV booster. I would like to thank the RSC for their generosity and Professor Went for the nomination.’

Charlie was nominated by Professor Michael Went from the School of Physical Sciences. Professor Went said: ‘It is fantastic achievement to win this prize for the best performance nationally in analytical chemistry.’

The School of Physical Sciences has also introduced a new Chemistry programme, which has seen the appointment of five new Chemistry lecturers, three of which are women.

A Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, with an option of a year in industry, and a Masters in Chemistry will be available for students joining the University in September 2013 (UCAS codes F107, 108, and F109).
