"Studying for the MSc in Social Psychology I found the support of my fellow students, and the involvement of staff in the various research groups and projects, truly fired my enthusiasm for the subject. 

It was undoubtedly such encouragement that enabled me to be awarded the Hilde Himmelweit prize, which gave me a much greater confidence to pursue my studies by undertaking a PhD, as well as being a pleasing reward for a year of hard work!"
