College celebrates HE graduates

Updated 14/11/2017

Over 100 Higher Education students from Gower College Swansea recently attended a special graduation event at the Great Hall on Swansea University's Bay Campus.

The students were celebrating achievement in subjects as diverse as accountancy, engineering, leadership and management, sports massage therapies, hair and beauty management, childcare, and health and social care services.

"The Welsh Government places great emphasis upon education and particularly further and higher education, in terms of the delivery of the skills needed to support a strong economy," says Principal Mark Jones. "I'm delighted that Gower College Swansea, working with our HE and other partners, is able to support this agenda and is continuing to develop our HE provision through strong partnership working."

"I graduated with work colleagues and it was nice for us to have an evening away from the office together, celebrating our hard work and also meeting family and friends," says one student who attended the event.

Gower College Swansea delivers a range of HE courses in partnership with the University of South Wales, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and Wrexham Glyndŵr University.
