Foundation Degree Success

Twenty-one Alton College students graduated with honours on two Foundation Degree courses run in partnership with the University of Portsmouth this summer.  This was the first group of ten FdEng students to graduate after studying at Alton College for three years for a degree in Engineering. All the students achieved excellent grades with six students achieving Distinctions and two students achieving merits.  In addition, Joshua Hall was awarded a prize for outstanding achievement which was presented by Diana Spoors (Director of Learning) during a special prize giving ceremony. Several of the students plan to continue their studies at the University of Portsmouth this year on undergraduate or Masters programmes and we wish them luck.

On the same day eleven students from the FdA Early Years Care and Education course also collected their FdA degrees. Special mention must be made of Jo Cannings who was the only student to achieve a Distinction grade on this course across a number of different centres. This is the thirteenth year that Alton College has celebrated the graduation of students on this course and many students have gone on to careers in teaching, social work, local education advisory services or Special Educational Needs.  We look forward to enrolling our sixteenth group of students on the course this month.
