I had a wonderful time studying at the University of Leicester. I have enjoyed the challenges and the achievements in this whole journey and I was becoming more and more nostalgic as my graduation ceremony was coming closer.

My graduation was on 11th July 2017 at the De Montfort Hall. Before the actual convocation, our Department of Engineering organised a prize-giving ceremony followed by some refreshments. I was making the most of this opportunity to speak to my fellow classmates and my professors before I leave.

I was really delighted to receive the Leicester branch British Computer Society (BCS) prize for ‘Best Student’ graduating in Software Engineering.


After this prize giving ceremony, we all proceed towards the De Montfort Hall to attend the final ceremony of the day which was about to start at 3 pm. All the graduates and their guests were seated and the ceremony commenced with a welcoming and inspiring speech from the vice chancellor. We all went up to the stage, shook hand with the vice chancellor and then later received our degree certificate. The whole ceremony was recorded live so that the family members who weren’t able to attend could view it. The ceremony lasted roughly for over an hour.

All the memories from my First year started flash back, I still remember the Professional and Industial Aspect of Engineering (PIAE) courses in my first year, which was a great experience.

Finally, it was the time to say Adios to my university and to cherish all the memories that I have made at the University of Leicester.
