UCM Higher education awards ceremony will go ahead

It's been confirmed an event to recognise the hard work of students at University College Isle of Man will take place later this year.

The event will see over 100 students, receiving their degree and postgraduate awards at UCM, validated by the University of Chester.

Students who have completed higher level apprenticeships and professional certifications, will also receive their awards and prizes.

The college's Vice Principal, Jo Richardson, says: "The event means a lot to students, as it gives them an opportunity to celebrate their success with family and friends.

"In addition to that, we are even more excited about the event this year because we are one of the very few higher education institutions that will be running a physical, live ceremony, as universities and colleges in the UK have had to postpone or cancel their ceremonies or have held them virtually."

The college adds it's closely followed government guidelines due to current Covid- 19 restrictions to ensure that the safety of students.
