What would you spend it on?
While three grand would cover a term of your tuition fees, feel free to spend the money on whatever you like. Previous winner Emma Calkin,an Archaeology student from Newcastle, is planning to use the money to go travelling.
“I have been wanting to travel around Europe with my sister for some time so this will be our way to get there.
“I’ve never won anything like this before, it’s amazing!”
Another winner, Fei Xu, a PhD student from Reading, has said they’ll put the money toward their studies as well as donating a third of it to charity.
“Next year, as part of my course, I am going to Embrapa University in Rio De Janeiro, so this prize money will definitely come in handy.”
Fei isn’t the only winner feeling generous with their winnings. Thomas David is studying a PhD in Materials Engineering at Oxford, and wants to use some of his three grand to treat his mates.
“This money will be very useful for all of the books I’ll need over the next three years. I’ll probably use the remainder of the money to take some friends to some festivals next year to make the most out of the summer in-between studying.”
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with using some of the money for a more immediate reward. Hannah Blofield is in the third year of her Engineering degree at Bath, and is using some of her money to splash out on a pamper day and a new winter wardrobe, while fellow winner Jess Attoe from Leicester said: “Right now I might just buy lots of chocolate!”
