It has been a day of celebrations for Northbrook College students as the college had its annual graduation ceremony.
Hundreds of graduates flocked Worthing Assembly Hall, on Stoke Abbott Road for the celebrations, which kicked off at 2.30pm.
More than 400 university level students graduated this year from the college, in Littlehampton Road, Worthing, in both bachelor and foundation degrees.
Principal of Northbrook College, Sue Dare, said the graduation ceremonies are always an ‘absolute delight’.
She added: “Its the combination of all of the hard work from our students and staff, to see all them all getting their degrees – all of whom will go on to have super careers as a result of the work they have done at Northbrook.
“I know the staff will join me in wishing them well for the future.”
This year saw guest of honour, Marc Koska, 55, from Danehill in East Sussex, hand out certificates and give a speech on his success as the inventor of the non-reusable syringe, preventing the medical transmission of blood-borne diseases.
Other guests included mayor of Worthing, Sean McDonald, who said it was a ‘fantastic day to show that in Worthing we have a fantastic number of young people who are graduating and going through all these different processes – and it is important that we honour their achievements’.
