graduationA big ‘thank you’ to all staff who have put forward names of 2016 Degree Congregation graduating students, to be featured as success stories for us and news media.

We’ve had a fabulous response this year and as we’ve started our interviews, we’ve heard several impressive tales of triumphs over extraordinary challenges because, as you know, many of our students are juggling jobs and family commitments as they work to achieve their academic success.

A common theme in our conversations with graduating students has been their eagerness to thank University staff – both academic and professional support – for all their efforts to help students realise their potential.

We will cover as many student stories as we can next week. If someone comes to mind who we have not got on our list, we’ll try to squeeze them in – but hurry! Send your student’s details to together with that student’s contact details and a summary of why you think they would make a great student story.
