Liberty proves she's an excellent student

Date published: 06 December 2019

Talented Oldham student Liberty Kwai Wilcox was among Bangor University winners who received prizes at the annual Entrance Scholarship Presentation evening.

A total of 124 awards totalling almost £290,000 were awarded to new first year students.

The majority were receiving Scholarship awards after excelling in the University’s own Entrance Scholarship exams, or for their high academic achievement in their A-level exams or equivalent. 

Liberty is a former pupil of Oldham Sixth Form College and is now studying Medical Science at Bangor University.

She was awarded an Excellence Scholarship, and received a cheque for £3,500.

“Our scholarship awards mean that we’re able to recognise and reward those who either excel in our entrance scholarship examinations, or achieve the highest academic attainment upon entry” said Amanda Smith, Marketing Manager.

“We're really keen to attract the best calibre students to Bangor University and to support those students as far as possible,” she added.

Bangor University - ranked Top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction - has over £3.4m in bursaries and scholarships available for new and returning students in September 2020.
