The National Design Academy held its graduation ceremony as part of the Staffordshire University celebrations at Trentham Gardens on Friday 13th July. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t kind, but thankfully the rain did not dampen spirits!
This year saw the highest number of BA (Hons) graduates – many of whom had attended a previous graduation when they received their Foundation Degree. We were delighted to meet graduates and their families at a Champagne Reception before the ceremony. What was particularly noticeable was the support from families, many having 3 and even 4 generations present to celebrate their achievements. While the champagne flowed, graduates posed for photographs with their tutors and shared experiences with other students, some of whom they had never met.
