UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS) awards prizes for outstanding work in our undergraduate programmes and HPSC modules. We're proud of our student, and shout about their successes.
We award prizes for outstanding student work in specific modules, such as dissertations, and for overall performance across a year or the whole degree. Our Faculty (UCL Faculty of Mathematics and Physical Sciences) offers other prizes, and we enthusiastically put students forward when suitable.
