College students celebrate academic achievements

college celebrates 600It was smiles all round at the weekend, as the College of West Anglia’s Higher Education students celebrated their academic achievements at the annual Graduation ceremony.

The ceremony, which took place at the Alive Corn Exchange on Saturday 10 October 2015, is the most prestigious event in the college’s calendar and this year celebrated the graduation of 138 CWA students, graduating from 18 programmes.

Proceedings began with the traditional academic procession through King’s Lynn Town Centre, leaving from the Town Hall at 12.05pm and arriving at the Corn Exchange by 12.30pm for the ceremony.

The students, known as graduands up until they graduate, received their certificates in Higher National Qualifications and Professional Qualifications.

Certificates were presented to the students by CWA Principal David Pomfret, and Professor Michael Thorne, Vice Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin University, who was also the keynote speaker. Proceedings were attended by proud family, friends, college governors and staff.

In addition, the college celebrated the University Centre West Anglia (UCWA) student of the year award, presented by Dr Apurba Kundu, ARU Deputy Dean. This year, the award went to Rachael Castleton, BA History and English Literature with First Class Honours.

At the end of ceremony, the academic procession of college staff, governors, guests – and now with the addition of the graduates – processed again through the streets of King’s Lynn, where members of the public clapped and congratulated the graduates on their success.

In addition to annual proceedings, this year saw the addition of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) pledge and declaration ceremony, which took place at the College of West Anglia King’s Lynn campus Tower Block, later that afternoon. The declaration ceremony is a result of the college receiving accreditation from the RCVS for its degrees in veterinary nursing and applied animal behaviour.
