Anthropology with Innovation student among Student Awards 2018 winners

8 December 2017

Anthropology with Innovation student Josh Greenidge has been announced as one of the winners in the Alumni Association Student Awards 2018.

The 28-year-old, originally from Devon, struggled at school due to his dyslexia and was home schooled throughout his teenage years, eventually teaching himself to read and write.

Josh learnt to love reading and learning, but with no GCSEs or A-Levels, he found his education limited to lectures on YouTube.

Now, thanks to stumbling across a video about the Foundation Year in Arts and Humanities at the University of Bristol, he’s sitting in real lecture theatres and his achievements are winning accolades.

Josh is one of seven students at the University to win an award, with each winner receiving £500 in recognition of overcoming personal adversity or making an outstanding contribution to the University or community. They were presented with their awards at a special ceremony held in the Richmond Building, home of the University of Bristol Students’ Union (Bristol SU).
