University of Westminster students in Harrow given £1,000 in recognition of academic successes
Ten Harrow students have each been awarded £1,000 in recognition of their academic successes.
The University of Westminster media, art and design students who live in Harrow were each given the money as part of the university’s Academic Awards for Excellence scheme.
Award winner Reena Chadee said: “It is great to have my potential recognised, but I am most excited to go to the local shop and buy nice food rather than cheap beans on toast.
“Hard work really does pay off. Literally”
Overall, the Academic Awards for Excellence have invested £300,000 in students across the University of Westminster, £52,000 of which has been given to students in Harrow.
