On Saturday 15th October, UcWA celebrated the achievements of 271 graduates of 2020 to 2022, across 16 higher education programmes during two ceremonies. The ceremonies took place in King’s Lynn Minster, situated in the historic surroundings of the Saturday Market Place in the heart of King's Lynn.

The College of West Anglia provides higher education opportunities to approximately 400 students, including degrees, higher apprenticeships and HNC Higher National Certificates. The fact that UcWA can offer such a diverse and excellent quality range of higher education locally is due to the successful partnerships UcWA has established with Anglia Ruskin University and the University of Huddersfield.

Doctor Mark Norrish, Pro Vice Chancellor at Anglia Ruskin University, delivered the keynote speech. Dr Lynn Senior, Director at The Education and Training Consortium, University of Huddersfield, attended the ceremony to celebrate with the graduates. Tom Richardson, BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies, delivered the vote of thanks on behalf of the student body. Aida Murnikaite, BSc (Hons) Business Management and Amy Johnson, HNC Construction, both won Outstanding Student Awards.

Following the ceremonies, visitors to King’s Lynn town centre looked on as University Centre West Anglia (UcWA) graduates processed through the streets after graduating. As is tradition, the academic staff from UcWA, The Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, with staff and mace bearers as well as the graduates’ friends and family, joined the procession through the town.

David Pomfret, Principal of College of West Anglia said:

"The last few years continued to be a very challenging time globally. Despite that, I am particularly pleased that our 2020, 2021 and 2022 graduates achieved great success, with over 80% of all completing students achieving ‘Good’ degree outcomes (first class or upper second classifications). Our higher education students have sacrificed much to achieve success, but with the support of their family, friends, and ongoing support from staff, they have overcome many obstacles. Our graduates should be extremely proud of themselves and what they have achieved."
