More than 1000 people attended Nottingham College’s Higher Education (HE) Graduation Ceremony today (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 his studies and now hopes to get a job in software or web development.

It hasn’t been easy but the challenging times all seem worth it now I’m here at graduation. It’s a big achievement for me and it gives me so many more opportunities in the future. 

 — Edward A. Baah

BA (Hons) Performing Arts student, Sophie Hewlett, is hoping to pursue a career in screen acting.

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. 

 — Sophie Hewlett
Chris Miggells

Halfway through the ceremony, as part of the interval, we were delighted to welcome back one of our former graduates, pianist and composer, Chris Miggells, 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.
