UCP graduates celebrate at Peterborough Cathedral

Hundreds of students from University Centre Peterborough (UCP) celebrated their graduation in the historic Peterborough Cathedral on Thursday 20th September 2018.

The formal ceremony was led by Deputy Mayor of Peterborough Cllr John Fox as students and academic staff processed from The Bull Hotel to the Cathedral which was packed with family and friends of the students.

Students from University Centre Peterborough have graduated from a variety of degree programmes including Accounting, Bioscience, Computing, Criminology, English Literature, Performing Arts, Sociology and Sports Coaching.  Many of the graduates have already secured full-time work in their chosen careers and will remain and work in the area. This is aided by students gaining work placements and experience while studying which benefits local businesses by securing the best graduates from the region.

Liz Knight, Academic Director at University Centre Peterborough said "This is the most important day in the University Centre calendar and we congratulate all of our students and extend our very best wishes for their future careers. We would also like to extend our sincere thanks to family, friends and businesses that have supported our graduates during their study time."

A special award was presented on the evening to Sharon Boswell who graduated after studying a BA (Hons) Sports Coaching and Physical Education degree.  Sharon received 'The Vice Chancellor’s Leader Award' which was presented by Anglia Ruskin University in recognition of her contribution to the community.  Just six awards are available each year out of all the students who study at Anglia Ruskin University and University Centre Peterborough.
