Vice Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Achievement
The Vice Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Achievement has been established to recognise the outstanding performance of students completing their postgraduate degree by coursework.
The award will be awarded to the highest achieving postgraduate coursework student in a Masters program from each Faculty.
The Pro-Vice Chancellor from each Faculty will nominate the top two recipients to receive the award.
Up to eight medals are conferred each year, two from each Faculty. Each prize consists of $1,000 and a framed medallion and will be presented at one of the annual graduation ceremonies. An appropriate endorsement is also made on each student's Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).
The award is not available to students enrolled in a Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma. Candidates may not self-nominate.
