Principal's Welcome

Congratulations to all the students graduating today from the University Centre Wigan & Leigh College.

For several years I have had the privilege to celebrate graduation with our graduates, their families and friends and acknowledge their outstanding achievements. However, for the class of 2020 achievement has taken on a whole new meaning. The onset of the pandemic meant you had to overcome immense personal and professional uncertainty and face challenges during your studies the likes of which were unprecedented. But you have done it. You have not allowed those challenges and barriers stop your academic journey, your educational aspirations and your future career goals. Yours is an achievement like no other.

You have created firm foundations for your future careers and lives at a time when your knowledge and skills have never been more needed and though today marks the end of one educational journey I hope that for many this is the start of further studies and a lifelong passion for learning.

We may not be able to celebrate with you in person but we are so very proud of your achievements.

On behalf of all the staff at the College we offer our congratulations and best wishes for your future academic and professional careers.

Anna Dawe
