Graduates came together with families, friends and staff at Alive Leisure Corn Exchange on Saturday 5th October 2019 for their graduation ceremony.
Speakers at the ceremony included Principal David Pomfret, Mayor Geoff Hipperson and keynote speaker is Professor Roderick Watkins, Vice Chancellor (Research and Innovation) Anglia Ruskin University, while the student vote of thanks speech was delivered by Nicola Wardle.
Principal David Pomfret said:
This summer our HE students demonstrated their confidence in our HE provision with UCWA achieving an overall satisfaction score of 100% in the National Student Survey on both the BA Hons Psychosocial Studies and BA Hons Early Childhood Studies programmes. The 2019 graduands also achieved great success with over 75% of all completing students achieving ‘Good’ degree outcomes (first class or upper second classifications). Our HE students have sacrificed much to achieve success, but with the support of their family, friends and ongoing support from staff they have overcome many obstacles. Our graduates should be extremely proud of themselves and what they have achieved.
The overall Student of the Year was announced as Rachel Mason, FdSc Veterinary Nursing and Applied Animal Behaviour for her outstanding achievements during her time at the university centre. Rachel is currently working as a veterinary nurse at Village Vet.
Rachel Mason’s tutors said:
Rachel has shown true resilience throughout the duration of her course. Rachel joined us as a mature student following a very successful career as a health and safety officer. From the outset Rachel has been wholeheartedly committed to achieving her career change and her dream of becoming a veterinary nurse.
