Graduates were further inspired by three guest speakers throughout the ceremonies, with Kevin McCook, Managing Director of MacCook Retail, Paralympic gold medallist, Libby Clegg MBE, and Deputy Lieutenant Robert Allison DL addressing Business, Sport, and Cross-Curriculum graduates respectively.

Over 800 learners graduated from Loughborough College this year, whose partnerships with a number of universities and awarding bodies, including Nottingham Trent and Loughborough University allow students to explore a range of degree courses with flexible study options and an emphasis on employability.

Graduate Ryan Deamer, who achieved First Class Honours in Applied Sports Science with Management shared: “I chose Loughborough College because I wanted to be in a high-performance environment that could push me to become my best.

"I’ve come away with more than just a degree, I’ve come away with new connections and relationships. It was a great experience.”

Among the graduates, was the College’s canine friend Mylie, who walked across the stage to receive the UK Kennel Club Good Citizen Silver Award from Therapy Dog Training UK.

Mylie has been working with the College since 2021, becoming the UK’s first further education college to introduce a therapy dog service to learners and staff.

Following their ceremonies, graduates marked their achievements with family and friends in the iconic Loughborough Sock Gallery.
