THIS year’s graduating class from the University of Western Australia Albany Centre proudly stood before friends and family this week at the Albany Entertainment Centre to mark the completion of their undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD degrees.

Among the 2017 class were 15 undergraduates, seven postgraduates and three PhD students, of whom UWA Albany Centre manager Paula Phillips said had worked hard to reach their achievements.

“The UWA Albany community is extremely proud of the Albany graduates who have completed their degrees this year,” she said.

“The students’ hard work and perseverance has paid off and they can all be satisfied on reaching this achievement.”

“We are looking forward to future growth in the coming year as we offer more students the access to higher education in the Great Southern.”

The graduating class included The Weekender’s own Grace Jones, who achieved a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English and Cultural Studies, and History.
