Recognition of Achievement: 2020-2021 Intake

This year due to lockdown we once again celebrated the success of our 2020-2021 Structured Master’s Students, by producing a short Recognition of Achievement Video highlighting the achievements of this group of students.

We are very pleased that 31 students, among them 14 women, completed the Master’s in Mathematical Sciences programme successfully.

Local and international lecturers spent many hours online, supervising students and it was once again encouraging to see how well this and the oral examination defence sessions worked.

“I would like to congratulate you for your adaptability and flexibility in a learning environment that was of necessity different from the usual set-up,” Dr Simukai Utete, Academic Director.

The video contains messages by senior members of our partner universities, who would normally have been present at the ceremony, as well as a student address.

We congratulate the following students who were awarded AIMS Endowed Scholarships. These are awarded to students who have performed exceptionally well during the course of the year:

  • The Stephen Hawking Scholarship was awarded to Ms Hanitriniala Malalatiana Rakotondrasoa from Madagascar.
  • The Martin Rees Scholarship, was awarded to Mr Tolotranirina Gabriel Andrianarisoa from Madagascar
  • The Paul G. Allen Scholarship was awarded to Ms Everlyn Asiko Chimoto from Kenya

“It is a pleasure to congratulate our 2020-21 Master’s group who displayed self-discipline and academic maturity in successfully completing the Master’s programme in what has been without a doubt an unusual year. We wish them all the best for the future,” Prof. Barry Green, Director, AIMS South Africa.
