A STUDENT from Studley has been recognised by the University of Worcester for her outstanding academic achievements.

Anna Harley was awarded a £1,000 scholarship for outstanding academic achievement throughout the 2019/20 academic year, earned despite the unprecedented circumstances created by the global pandemic.

“I am really happy to have achieved this scholarship as it is something to show for all the hard work I have put into my degree,” said the 20-year-old Biomedical Science student.

“It was a shock opening the email to say I had received an award, but it has definitely made all my effort worth it.”

Anna, now in her third year, said studying during the pandemic proved hard at times, but that the university had helped by answering any questions and ensuring learning continued online.

“I chose to study at Worcester because there is a big community feel to it, along with class sizes being small meaning that I know everyone on my course and feel it is easier to go to any lecturers for help,” said Anna.

“The city is also lovely with lots of nice shops and cafes to relax in when not doing work and the Hive is a great space to study in with pretty views from the top floor.”
