Congratulations to the scholars of St Edmund’s, as 18.5% of our students received a First this year, which is a record in recent years. 15 students achieved a First and 9 were awarded a Distinction, together with 47 students who achieved a 2i.
Particular congratulations go to Philip Stefanovski, who achieved the highest mark for the LLM course this year, coming top in his class of 131.
Philip said, 'The Cambridge LLM was a very rewarding experience. It was challenging at times, but all the hard work paid off when I received my results and was fortunate enough to finish first amongst a very talented group. In the end I think that the thing that helped me excel was not the hours in the library, but rather the very social and collegiate atmosphere at Eddies that helped me switch focus when I was not working. At Eddies, I was lucky enough to not only be surrounded by a large cohort of gifted students also doing the LLM, but also to be supported by a wider network of interesting, engaging and inclusive individuals on a daily basis.'
In addition, Emmeline Plews, Philip Stefanovski, Rosemary Ellender and Christopher Hardy were all awarded prestigious University prizes. We also wish to congratulate all the winners of College prizes – we shall include further details in the Edition in December 2015.
We commend our students for their fantastic achievements and we wish our recent graduands all the best for their next venture after St Edmund’s.
