Graduation

West College Scotland’s Graduation Ceremonies are the most prestigious events in the College’s calendar, where successful students from Higher National programmes graduate. It is also an occasion where awards are presented to those who have excelled or overcome challenges in the achievement of their qualification. 

This year, all five of our Graduation Ceremonies will take place in September for the first time. The change follows feedback from former students who said they felt they missed out because they had either started a job or were at University. We are hoping that the lighter nights and better weather (fingers crossed 😊) will further enhance the day for our students and their families.
