Winter awards ceremonies - vox pop

The winter award ceremonies began yesterday in the Assembly Rooms. The School of Management's first cohort of Accountancy & Finance MSc students graduated in the first ceremony, along with 130 Management MSc students.

Huu Hieu Nguyen, Management, travelled from his home in Belgium for the service. He has been working in Brussels since the summer. He said: “The service was just what I had hoped it would be – completely British and completely traditional. In Belgium you don’t graduate in a gown, or go on stage, or even get a certificate like this. I had a great time at Bath, it felt really international and I made friends from all over the world.”

Eleni Argyri & Maria Koliga, both from Greece, graduated in Management & Marketing. Eleni said: “The course was a great experience - hard work but interesting. I’ve started working with a marketing company in Greece and Maria has joined her family business.”

Tiffany Bienvenu, from France, graduated in Management & Finance. She said: “It’s been very emotional. The service was lovely and it’s great to get together with friends again. There’s nothing comparable in France. I really enjoyed my time at the University and I like the area so much that I have decided to stay and look for work locally.”

Tong Jun & Wen Shu both graduated in Accounting & Finance. Tong said: “The ceremony was brilliant, I’ve loved seeing all my friends and being able to celebrate finishing such a hard course! Wen and I are both from China - I’ve decided stay in the UK and will be studying at Imperial College and Wen is hoping to find a job in a bank in China.”

Line Doehlan, Management, travelled from Norway with her family for the ceremony. She said: “I loved Bath - the city, the University and the student life. Now I’ve graduated I’m busy getting ready to travel around South America.”
