Richard Preziosi has set up two prizes, one for first year and one for second year Zoology students.
The Charles Gordon Hewitt Prize will be awarded to a First Year Zoologist, based on their 1st semester Practical marks. The prize will be worth the cost of the Millport Marine Biology field course – in other words, you’ll go free.
The John Leigh Philips Prize will be awarded to a Second Year Zoologist, based on their 3rd semester LSM marks.

So – work hard at those practicals!
