"To be recognised by such an established institution as the BCS is an honour of the highest accord. I was able to use everything I had learnt in my previous 3 years both at Brookes and also whilst on placement to produce this project and for me this is the culmination of 3 years of effort to produce the final outcome. I owe a great amount of gratitude to both the staff (both teaching staff and support staff) and also the BCS in recognising my work and also the effort put in to produce it. This is an accolade which I will talk proudly of for many years to come and it has made the late evenings and early mornings very much worthwhile.

I am now starting the next stage in my career as a Graduate Developer for Golfbreaks.com and I am very much looking forward to making the next steps in my career. Oxford Brookes have provided me with an ideal toolkit filled with skills and ideas, which is testament to the fantastic staff and services which have proven invaluable to me. Thank-you again for the gift and award and I will talk proudly about my achievements for many years to come."
