Students from the BSc (Hons) radiotherapy and oncology course at Ulster University were recently honoured in the Dean’s Awards for Academic Excellence across the allied health professional courses.

The awards initiative was established to reward students for their academic efforts, and students who achieve a year average of 70% or greater are officially recognised for their achievement and included on the ‘Dean’s List’.

This year’s successful students included Ruth Gibson and Catherine Short (Credit Level 4); Hannah Agnew and Hannah Cahill (Credit Level 5); Gillan Aoibheann and Martha Glass (Credit Level 5 - achievement two years). Gillan and Martha received the award for both the first and second year of the programme.

Martha Glass was the only student able to attend the ceremony in person, because she was undertaking her final placement at the local cancer centre. Final year students Hannah Agnew, Hannah Cahill and Aoibheann Gillan were unable to attend as they were on an Erasmus exchange in the Netherlands.

“It is wonderful to see so many of the BSc (Hons) radiotherapy and oncology students at Ulster achieving such success each year, and the high success rate demonstrates their commitment to the course,” said Terri Gilleece, lecturer and placement co-ordinator.
