First-class honours for nine Bromley College degree students

First-class honours for nine Bromley College degree students

The nine students - Karl Baird, Samira Gharbieh, Siavash Beikoghli Kalkhoran, Sian Russell, Cheryl Griffiths, Connor Scott, Faye Brown, Jacqui Long and Susie Ruffles - participated in a ceremony held at Rochester Cathedral on 26th July, and proudly paraded the street in caps and gowns alongside 300 graduates from the University of Greenwich.

Student Cheryl Griffiths said: 'I'm really proud to have done so well. I'm really grateful for all the help we received from our tutors along the way. It was very hard but very rewarding.'


The students were able to work towards their degrees on a full-time or part-time basis, first studying at Bromley College and then completing their degrees in Biomedical Science at the University of Greenwich's Medway Maritime Campus.

Student Connor Scott said: 'Without Bromley College I definitely wouldn't have achieved a first. The tutors really helped me and their teaching methods made students excel. It was a great experience. I wish to use my degree to get into medical school and become a doctor.'


Sheila Lake, Curriculum Manager, Science & Maths and Animal Care, said: 'We are so proud of all of our students' achievements and of how well our Higher Education team has prepared them for their next steps. In the case of these nine wonderful first-class honours graduates, we couldn't be happier for them. Their ambition and determination have paid off in a big way, and we are honoured to have played a part in their tremendous success.'


Bromley College offers several higher education courses, including a number of degree and foundation degree programmes.
