QAHE hosts a Virtual Celebration for University of Roehampton Centres students
Posted on Tuesday 15th of September 2020
In spite of this year’s challenges, we wanted to ensure that our graduates were still able to celebrate their achievements from their time at university.
In August 2020, we were very excited to host the first Virtual Celebration for our University of Roehampton Centres students. An impressive 270+ students attended from the comfort of their homes to receive a congratulations from various academics and alumni.
Compered by our Head of Conversion, Martha Walsh, the celebration began with an inspiring speech from Steven Driver – Vice Provost for Education at the University of Roehampton. He reflected on the challenging time these students faced in the last few months, before highlighting the importance of their achievements:
“Today’s event is still rightly a celebration of all your hard work, your dedication, your achievements – this is your reward. Getting a degree changes lives; this is what Roehampton has been about for 150 years.”
He was followed by more academics that have accompanied these students on their journey; Executive Dean – Tim Harris, Director of Degree Apprenticeships – Donna Corr, Associate Dean – Martin Gilbert, and more familiar faces who all wished our students the best luck for their futures.
The students were then welcomed into the alumni community by previous students who spoke highly of their experiences, both during and after completing their degree:
“It was an amazing experience, and if I look backwards at the person I was before compared to the person I am now, after completing this course, it is an unbelievable and amazing journey. I am excited that I have graduated.”

We would like to congratulate all our University of Roehampton Centres students on their remarkable achievements, and wish them unmeasurable success in their future endeavours.
