Student prizes

Each year, our School recognises the outstanding achievements of our students by awarding prizes. Prize winners are chosen according to an eligibility criteria for each prize. Generally this can be the highest mark in a unit or highest Weighted Average Mark (WAM) in their particular chosen course.

Awards span many of our courses, including finance, accounting, economics, law, justice and management. Students who have won a prize are notified by February and are invited to attend the annual prize giving ceremony in March each year. The Student Prize Evening is an important event for our School. We are proud of our students and delight in celebrating their outstanding achievements.

Community sponsorship

The student prizes are sponsored by over 40 generous businesses and individuals from across the business, law, finance, marketing, tourism, management and human resources sectors of our community.
