"Receiving this prize from the BCS was a great honour and something that was totally unexpected.  During my first year I was determined to do as well as I could and with the high standards of teaching at Oxford Brookes I was able to achieve the grades I did."

— Joshua Kilburn

After the presentation Nigel hosted Sheila and Joshua to a gorgeous lunch at the Brookes University restaurant. The restaurant, run by the students, is open to the public. Sheila found the menu to be imaginative and the food absolutely delicious.
