Secondary graduate and currently fourth-year Tertiary Academic Leader from Coen, Shonae Hobson, was included in the Dean’s Honours List at the University of Melbourne for her overall academic performance during 2016.

The award recognises high-achieving students and alumni of the Faculty of Arts. Eligibility for inclusion is determined on the basis of a credit-point-weighted average in the relevant year of study in the course, with students ranked in the top 3% (undergraduate) and top 3-5% (graduate) of their course included.

The list is compiled at the end of each academic year and presented in the first half of the following year.

Students receive a certificate from the Dean of the Faculty of Arts at an annual presentation ceremony, and the achievement is recorded on each student’s Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) and academic transcript.

Shonae began her tertiary studies with CYLP after being supported by the Program throughout her secondary schooling at Stuartholme School in Brisbane.

This is Shonae’s ninth year receiving support from the Program.
