Record number of OPs achieve First Class Honours

Congratulations to all OPs who finished their degrees this summer under what must have been very difficult circumstances.

General News

With lectures, academic resources, exams and even graduation ceremonies moving online during the pandemic, it has been a tough end to university life for many.

It is particularly pleasing therefore, to report a record number of OPs achieving First Class Honours in a diverse range of subjects from Agri-business to Zoology. A full list of First Class Honours is below; their names will appear on the honours boards in the Music School in due course.

Well done everyone!
