First year winning student, Katy Stanger, from Sutton Coldfield and second year winning student, Govinder Shergill, from Dudley will each receive £400 from Paycare Charity Trust chair, David Clegg.
Trustees of Wolverhampton-based Paycare Charity Trust annually award prizes to the highest achieving student in the first and second years of Biomedical Science undergraduate study programmes at the University’s School of Applied Sciences.

Dr Ruth Shiner, Head of Biomedical Science & Physiology Department at the University, said: “The University is extremely appreciative of the Award Scheme, which is now in its nineteenth year.
“The BSc (Hons) degree in Biomedical Science attracts many students from the local area and provides education and training for employment in hospital and medical research laboratories.
