Licia Carlesi has been awarded the 2015 SALIS Founders' Medal for Academic Excellence.
Licia graduated with a first-class honours BA in Languages for International Communication (English Studies) at DCU's autumn conferring.
The Medal, which was launched in 2010 on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the founding of the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies, is named to acknowledge the foresight, commitment and dedication of the founding members of staff in SALIS, and especially of its first Head of School, Prof Leslie Davis. It is awarded to one SALIS student each year, on the basis of his or her outstanding academic record.
The achievements of other SALIS students were also celebrated at graduation: Brian McGahey and Giulia Luzi were awarded prizes for coming joint first on BA in Applied Language and Intercultural Studies, while Sinéad Cawley received the prize for top marks on the BA in Applied Language and Translation Studies.
Congratulations are extended to our prizewinners, and to all SALIS students who graduated in November 2015.
