Last week Farnborough College of Technology held a series of five separate graduation ceremonies for HND and degree students.

The University of Surrey degrees were awarded to nearly 400 students graduating in a wide variety of different subject areas.

Special guests included local MP Gerald Howarth and Coun Brian Jupp, Mayor of Rushmoor. Mr Howarth praised the "enormous value of the training and facilities here at Farnborough which are providing people with the skills they need to work."
