Summer celebrations

Every summer thousands of students graduate from the University, but this year saw some more unusual awards being won by students – and staff.

The University has recently been granted authority to award qualifications of the City & Guilds of London Institute and the German Department successfully prepared five candidates for the Licentiateship for Off-campus Learning.

Members of the University’s Security Service were awarded NVQs in August. The training was provided by the Centre for Healthcare Studies in association with the Security Industry Training Organisation.

Hazel Elderkin, Learning Centre Manager at Elida Fabergé Ltd, became the first work-based learning student to graduate from the University. She received an MA in Organisational Development.
