Finalist Prizes 2007

The Edgar Palamountain Award for Excellence

In 1993, a solid Gold Medal, ‘The Edgar Palamountain Award for Excellence‘, was instituted in memory of Edgar Palamountain, Chairman of the Council at Buckingham from 1979 to 1984. The award is given every year to the undergraduate who is judged ‘first among equals’.

Chloe Woodhead with Frederick James Motson“Winning the Edgar Palamountain Award for Excellence was a fantastic way to end an incredible experience at Buckingham University. When I began my course of Law and Politics in January 2005, I was not sure what to expect from Buckingham, however it became clear in a matter of weeks that the quality and structure of the teaching would unlock my full academic potential. I also found that, while small, the student base was so diverse that I made strong friendships with students from all over the world, which have continued long after leaving Buckingham. The fact that I enjoyed my life in Buckingham so much was the reason why I was able to keep my academic performance at such a good level.

I was surprised and delighted to be singled out for the Award, as there were many strong candidates in my classes alone. The presentation, while nerve-wracking, was a very proud moment for me, especially as my family was there to see it. The Award now has pride of place on my CV and I am sure that it will greatly aid me in my future career.”
