This year, around 300 INTO Newcastle University alumni from all over the world picked up their degree certificates in the newly refurbished King’s Hall. The traditional awarding ceremonies were each led by the Bedel carrying the University mace to the strains of the Northumbrian pipes.

Among those graduating was Kenny who, having passed INTO Newcastle’s International Foundation in Architecture received a First-Class Honours degree in Architecture, having previously won the HB Saint William Bell Memorial Prize for his final project.

“INTO has set a great foundation for my transition to Newcastle University, especially helping me to use English confidently,” he said. “The International Year One program has really challenged and pushed me towards crafting spaces with the purpose for users and which in turn has still been influencing my design thinking today.”

Amber, who graduated with a degree in Marketing and Management will be continuing to do her Masters at the London School of Economics. She said: “I really enjoyed my three years studying in Newcastle. I met a group of nice and friendly tutors and classmates. I received excellent education and help from the University, especially INTO Newcastle.”

Meanwhile, Newcastle University Business School graduate, Daisy has landed a job with Morrisons as a Logistics Graduate, having completed the International Diploma in Business (now called Business International Year One) at INTO Newcastle, before progressing to her Business Management degree.

Daisy, who also completed a one-year placement at Procter & Gamble as a Master Data Analyst before finishing her degree had this to say about the experience: “I received so much help and care from work colleagues and I learned a lot, for example, business communications, presentation skills and data analysis. The placement definitely helped me with my search for a graduate job.”

Kevin Conroy, INTO Newcastle Centre Director, said, "graduation is one of my favourite times of the year. It really is such a special moment for our students and of course for their families, friends and teachers. Congratulations to them all! Everyone gets dressed up, cameras are everywhere and you can really hear the joy in the air. It's a wonderful occasion and the memories live forever!"

A week of ceremonies took place this summer in the University of East Anglia’s massive Sportspark hall, which was suitably decorated for the occasion.

The over 4,400 UEA graduates plus their families and friends then spent the rest of their special day celebrating in the special ‘graduation village’ on the athletics field. Among the food and drink stalls in the village was one run by INTO UEA where teachers and other staff were able to reconnect with dozens of the over 250 graduating INTO UEA alumni.

Across the five days, INTO UEA alumni from 17 countries - from Angola to Kazakhstan and Sudan, who were there to receive degrees in subjects from Accounting to Molecular Biology and Genetics – made a special effort to speak to those who had helped them at the INTO centre.

Zainul Marzuqi, who is from Brunei and received a 2:1 in his MPharm programme having completed the International Foundation in Pharmacy, Biomedicine and Health at INTO UEA in 2015, was keen to highlight the benefits of studying at the Centre: “INTO provides endless support with your education, wellbeing, and getting around in Norwich…. It did wonders for my development socially and academically – and helped by preparing me for a university degree.”

Thanks to everyone involved in his UK study experience, Zainul now feels ready to pursue a career in his chosen profession: “I will be undergoing training as a pre-registration pharmacist in Beccles to qualify as a registered pharmacist in the UK,” he added.

Adrian Wu, who comes from Hong Kong, completed the International Year One Psychology programme at INTO UEA in 2017 and gained his Psychology BSc from the University, also paid tribute to everyone at the Centre: "Doing International Year One with INTO UEA meant that I had the advantage of having a support team in my first year at UEA. If I had questions about tackling coursework etc, I could always seek help from INTO.”

“The UK offers a top quality education and the best opportunity to learn at an international level, INTO UEA made my transition into the UK much simpler and easier,” added Tayyab Arshad, who comes from Pakistan and was there to receive a BSc Marketing and Management (2:1), having completed the International Year One programme in Business Management and Economics at INTO UEA in 2017.
