A STUDENT at the City of Glasgow College has won the prestigious F&C investment Trust Prize.

Kirstie Ann Duncan, who studies HND Legal Services Student at the college, won the award in a public vote against other UK students.

The F&C Investment Trust Prize aims to showcase students’ financial understanding by offering inventive ways to close the UK’s financial knowledge gap.

She won a laptop computer, £5000 for her faculty to invest in research, and personal career mentoring.

Kirstie said: “This is an incredible award to win and I am very thankful to the City of Glasgow College for their support.”
