The Graduation celebrations continue, as more members of the Class of 2018 donned caps and gowns, before commemorating the end of their studies at the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.
Sam Eubel, who studied Tourism Management, described how he made the decision to move away from his home in Essex after visiting the University for an Open Day.
He said: “I looked at several universities across the country, but knew Hope was the right place after visiting the campus. I got the feeling that it was the right place for me and loved my time here.”
For Accounting & Finance and Business Management graduate Samyah Dahouchi, moving to Hope after spending a year at a different university saw her go from strength to strength.
“Graduating today feels completely surreal, as I never thought this day would come,” said Samyah. “After feeling lost and unsure university was for me, I decided to try Hope, and it was the best decision I ever made.
“The help and support here is amazing, and from the moment I applied and received advice on the best course for me, I’ve had a brilliant experience.”
Tomorrow’s final Graduation ceremony will see Dame Colette Bowe, Chairman of the Banking Standards Board, conferred with the degree Doctor of Humane Letters honoris causa.
