Annual faculty Prize Giving ceremony celebrates the achievements and contributions of our students

The event recognised and honoured outstanding students in the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences.

Prize Giving ceremony

Students with outstanding academic achievements or notable contributions to their department, the faculty, or the university received awards at the Annual Prize Giving event.

Teachers, tutors, family, and friends joined students in celebrating a significant milestone in their King’s journey at the event held in the Great Hall.

This was made possible by the generosity of many who have worked with the faculty. Some of these prizes arise out of legacies from alumni and former staff who seek to maintain their connection with the faculty, and to support King’s students in their endeavours.

You can find the full list of awards and winners of both departmental and faculty awards here.

Congratulations to all students who received an award.
