In total, 53 students graduated with doctorates, master’s bachelor’s and certificates of higher education qualifications from the department, which is based at the University’s Froebel College.
Hannah Woodgate BA, from Essex:
“I feel really celebratory and happy, but it’s the end of an era and the start of the real world now. It’s been a lovely day and the graduation ceremony was beautiful, I really enjoyed seeing everyone dressed up. Roehampton’s a small university, and it’s really up and coming, which I’ve really liked. I’ve enjoyed my time there and met so many people. Because it’s small we’ve had a lot of one on one help from our lecturers and in a small university there is more unity because people know each other as well.”
Nick Baines BA, from Zimbabwe:
“I’m really sad it’s all over, but today is the start of things to come, there’s been so much energy at graduation, I’m really proud.”
Dominique Macaly BA, from Essex:
“I am really excited, it has taken me four years but it’s been so good. I’m going to take a holiday then start earning some money. I have loved it at Roehampton, I wouldn’t change anything, I’ve met the best people ever.”
Nerissa Clarke BA, from Fulham:
“I’m really happy, I’m looking forward to the future, graduation is the end of one journey and the start of another. I’m going to take a holiday and then I want to get a full time job. My family are here to watch me graduate, and they’re really proud. I’m the first in my family to go to university so we’re all going to celebrate together.”
During the graduation ceremony on Monday afternoon, Head of Department Dr Jennifer Parker-Starbuck announced the winners of four annual student achievement prizes:
