More than 1000 people attended Nottingham College’s Higher Education (HE) Graduation Ceremony on 26th November at the atmospheric Royal Concert Hall.  

Family, friends and College staff gathered together to celebrate the achievements and academic success of more than 200 university-level course graduates. 

Among the proud graduates was 33-year-old Edward Baah, who moved to the UK from Ghana in 2016. He has worked hard to juggle a full-time job alongside studying towards a Higher National Diploma in Computing, and now hopes to get a job in software or web development. 

He said:

"It hasn’t been easy, but the challenging times all seem worth it now that I've graduated. It’s a big achievement for me and one which gives me so many more opportunities in the future.”  

BA (Hons) Performing Arts student, Sophie Hewlett, 21, from Mapperley, is hoping to pursue a career in screen acting. She said:

"It’s been so nice to get the opportunity to see friends from my course again and to celebrate graduation day together. It feels official now that I’m here, and I’m excited to start my career as a professional actor."

Halfway through the ceremony, as part of the interval, the College welcomed back former graduate, Chris Miggells (pianist and composer), who performed two tracks from his forthcoming album Synesthese. He graduated in 2012 with a First-Class BA (Hons) Degree in Sonic Arts and has since developed a successful international career as a performer and composer.
