A total of 49 winners in the School of Medicine and 20 winners in the School of Nursing and Midwifery were awarded recognition on the President’s Honours List, an achievement included on their transcripts and for which a financial bursary is provided in recognition of their achievements for the previous academic years. Among the winners, 16 students across both schools won twice and there was a total of six joint places.
