Awards & Prizes

History Prizes

The History Department awards prizes at the end of each year to students based on their academic performance. Prizes are awarded at the discretion of the relevant Exam Board.

As well as awarding monetary prizes to students who achieve the highest marks, the department also offers commendations to students with particularly strong performances. Prizes are open to both single and joint honours students based in History.

Several of our prizes are funded by donations from department alumni and generous sponsors. Details of the prizes available can be found below.

Beaumanoir-Hart History Prize for Best Overall Performance

The First Year Undergraduate Beaumanoir-Hart History Prize for Best Overall Performance was set up by a bequest from Dorothy Iris Beaumanoir-Hart. The prize is for first-year single honours and joint honours undergraduate students based in the History Department in recognition of outstanding academic achievement. It is usually awarded to the student with the highest overall average in their first year.
