Quantity Surveying Consultancy BSc(Hons): Student achievements

Student awards

Elsie NorthQuantity surveying student Elsie North has won a national prize for best female student in a competition run by the Association of Women in Property (WIP).

Elsie, who works for quantity surveyors Faithful & Gould while studying in her third year, was picked out as 'the best of the best' from eight regional finalists in a dinner held at Claridge's last week. In June, Elsie won the top regional prize in the competition, becoming the south-east finalist, before beating the other 59 students from 38 universities in the final, held at Claridge's in London.  

Winning £700 and a package of support that includes a place on the WIP mentoring scheme, Elsie was recognised for her "refreshing approach". Kingston's winner was applauded by the judges when she said: "We know [young people] are high risk, but employers must trust us to do the job."

A member of the teaching staff said: "We are all immensely proud of Elsie for what she has achieved; she succeeded against very strong competition. I note that the judges were particularly impressed by her confidence and her positive approach – both characteristics that are so vital for success in today's competitive environment. I am sure she will be an excellent role model for others entering the profession."

The awards were launched to inspire young women studying a built environment degree course and are open to female students in the second year of their studies.
