Top achievers during 2018 (Award ceremony 2019)

The Department of English would like to congratulate our top achievers during 2018, who received their prizes and certificates at an awards evening on 11 April 2019. The Department was joined by parents and friends of our top students to celebrate their achievements.

Special awards were sponsored by Van Schaik, OUP, Pearson, Philip Milstein and Mr Kenneth Hall. 

Lustre was added to the event by three postgraduate students, Nicole Best, Christiaan Naudé and Dewald Steyn, who read some of their own poetry, and by the lovely music provided by Kirsten Dey and Rozanne Roos.











The Gray award to a member of staff for outstanding research went to Prof. Corinne Sandwith.
