Tribute to Jakub

The recent and tragic death of Jakub Sedivy came as a great shock to all who knew him in the Schools of History and Politics and International Relations, where he was studying for a degree in History and Politics.

Jakub was a third year student, of great promise, who will be remembered by all who knew him for his lively, charming and engaging personal manner. He was a highly committed and conscientious student, always displaying impressive linguistic and academic skills, and in this his final year, was producing work of outstanding quality.

He will be sorely missed and we extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to his family in Slovakia.

Professor Roey Sweet

Head of the School of Historical Studies
