The Prize Winners for 2020 from BDS5 are:
The Jelf Medal
In 1868 Rev Richard Jelf DD retired from the office of Principal of the College which he had held since 1844. It was to commemorate his services to the College that his colleagues and friends established this endowment. One medal is awarded to a student in each of the Schools: Humanities; Health and Life Sciences, Law, Nursing, Biomedical Sciences, Education, Medicine, Dentistry and Psychiatry. Two medals are awarded to the School of Physical Sciences & Engineering, one of which is awarded to an Engineering student. The students chosen are those who, in the view of the Principal have most distinguished themselves during their undergraduate programme in the College. In making the awards regard will be had not only to the student's academic proficiency but also to their prominence in the social and athletic activities.
The Sachedina Prize
