Ogmore MP, Chris Elmore, has congratulated students at Bridgend College at their annual Higher Education awards ceremony in Pencoed.
Students were conferred in front of an audience of friends, family, lecturers and invited guests, to the University of South Wales and Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Mr Elmore commented: “Bridgend College really does go from strength to strength. Every time I visit the college, I’m amazed by the level of talent which is put on display – the college really does act as an educational springboard for our local young people.”
Hundreds of students graduated across two ceremonies were held at the college’s Pencoed Campus on Saturday, 14th October.
The local MP continued: “The college gets the balance right between Higher Education and Further Education opportunities. This plurality in learning is great to see locally. Congratulations to all those HE students on graduating and, of course, to the college Principal, the teaching staff, support staff and parents for the support they have provided along the way!”
