Prize winner Danielle Hayter

The University were delighted to announce two of our recent alumni, Danielle Hayter, 23, and Liam Jones, 24, have won highly competitive national prizes for their in-depth understanding of modern France.  

It is the first time a single university has won both prizes in the competition , which is organised by the Association for the Study of Modern and Contemporary France. 

Danielle, now studying for her Masters in International Relations and European Studies, won the Brian Darling Prize for the best undergraduate essay in French Studies, and Liam Jones won the Douglas Johnson Prize for the best dissertation on a French subject. His study analysed the motives behind increased Franco-German economic integration in Europe from 1982-1995 and its consequences.

Principal Lecturer in French and European Studies Emmanuel Godin said the School was delighted to have scooped both the top prizes.

He said: “These prizes are highly competitive. All universities from across the UK enter their best work and this is the first time that both prizes have been won by one university, a success that testifies to the strength of French and Modern Languages at Portsmouth.”
