Bristol student shortlisted for national prize

Bristol University student, Thomas Dean, who is studying for a BSc in Physics with Study in Continental Europe, has been selected as one of the ten finalists for the UK Erasmus Student Prize 2002.

The winner will be announced tomorrow [Thursday, November 14] at an event in London hosted by Margaret Hodge, Minister for Higher Education.

Each finalist will make a presentation to an invited audience and a panel of judges on their experience of living and studying abroad.

Erasmus is the EU scheme which enables higher education students to spend three to 12 months of their course in another participating country. All UK universities and many other UK Higher Education institutions have some involvement with the Erasmus student mobility programmes. All subject areas are included.

Tim Jones, Director of International Affairs at Bristol University, said: 'The University plays an active role in Erasmus and has links involving over 150 institutions across Europe and beyond.

'We wish Thomas every success for tomorrow's final. The fact he has been selected from hundreds of entries is an achievement in itself.'

Thomas Dean is in his fourth year at Bristol University. He spent his time in Germany on the Erasmus programme.

The winner will receive £1,000, with a second prize of £500 and a third prize of £350.
