The sun was shining and the town was buzzing with anticipation on Friday 23 November as hundreds of Kent University students made their way to Canterbury Cathedral to receive their diploma.
Following the ceremony, over 100 people including academics, students and their families gathered at Café Rouge for the School of Computing graduation party.
Professor Richard Jones, Head of School, welcomed everyone and was delighted to award the School of Computing Prize for best overall performance. The prize was given to three exceptional postgraduate students: Maxime Agor, MsC Networks and Security, achieved 81%; Dorota Oleszczuk, MSc Computer Science, achieved 84.1% and Ali Hariri, MSc Advanced Computer Science, achieved 85%
Maxime said ” I chose to do a masters at Kent both because of the high quality teaching and the intercultural aspect. I was both surprised and delighted to receive this prize, after what happened to be the most exciting year of my life”.
Ali Hariri commented “I would have never achieved what I achieved without the support and guidance of the staff of the school of computing. They are very knowledgeable and I will forever be grateful to them. My advice to the upcoming students: with enough time and effort, one can achieve anything, so just believe in yourselves and work hard!”
Congratulations to all the students.
