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.
