Graduation is of course one of the highlights of your degree ….in recent years Graduation Ceremonies have been held at the Brighton Centre on the infamous Brighton seafront. This is a great location as students can spill out on to the promenade for endless perfect photos, with a backdrop of sparkling sea and a packed beach. However this year the weather was not kind to students from the School of Architecture and Design. Always up for a challenge some of us braved the elements and found the gusts just made the obligatory hat throwing more fun. Meanwhile inside the Centre there was still much laughter, posing, hugs, champagne drinking and of course celebratory photo opportunities.
This resilience was no surprise, our recent NSS results showed that as a School we have an overall satisfaction score of 94.5% which makes us the strongest school in the whole of Brighton University. At 5.5% above the next strongest school we are also 14.21% above the University score of 80.29%.
So as the academic year draws to a close it is a huge congratulations to all staff and to our wonderful students – who cares about a bit of rain.
