Celebrate your achievements with family and friends at the Student Awards Ceremony 2017

21 November 2016

Our annual Awards Ceremony will be held Friday 17th March 2017. Every year our students amaze with the commitment and enthusiasm they give to their studies and this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate their successes and share a great evening together.

The evening begins with a cheese and wine reception allowing students to mingle with tutors, fellow students, family and friends. A photographer is also on hand to capture the evening including when students receive their certificates. The ceremony will last approximately one hour.
