At the University’s Summer Ceremony on July 1st, Thomas Hoeksema, Computing Science student, has been awarded the Aart Bosman Student Excellence Award. Every year the University of Groningen honours its talented students and researchers at the summer ceremony. The winners of the GUF-100 prizes and the Gratama Prize are announced, as well as next year’s international alumni ambassadors.

For best student of University of Groningen

The first Aart Bosman Student Excellence Award was awarded in 2009 to mark the establishment of the University of Groningen Honours College. The winner is selected as best student from the GUF-100 winners. The winner of the Aart Bosman Student Excellence Award is usually a student who, alongside outstanding results, stands out from the crowd in extracurricular activities that benefit society. Thomas Hoeksema was awarded a cum laude distinction for his Bachelor’s degree in Computing Science and is now following the Masters Honours College in High Tech Systems and Materials, with an average mark of 9.5. Always on the lookout for extracurricular challenges, he works as a software developer for a game company, is a team that is developing a method to register earthquakes in the province of Groningen, and is a teaching assistant for several Computing Science course units.
