We are delighted to announce this year's winners of undergraduate prizes for outstanding achievements in Final Honour School (FHS) exams.

The C D D Gibbs prize in Geography is awarded on the results of the examination for the Honour School of Geography in Trinity term 2015. Prizes are awarded for the best Human Geography (A J Herbertson) and Physical Geography (H O Beckit) Dissertations, for submitted work and for the best climate science dissertation (MOAP award).

Following a generous recent bequest we are delighted to award the second J C A Meldrum prizes in memory of past student John Charles Alexander Meldrum (1947, Jesus College). These prizes are offered to the best fieldwork reports in human and also in physical geography as well as to the best essays associated with the FHS option courses.

For the second time the prizes were awarded in person at the Herbertson Lunch, our alumni reception at the Alumni Weekend in Oxford, on 19 September.
