HUNDREDS of students celebrated their graduation in South Devon watched by family and friends.

More than 200 of South Devon College's university students graduated at ceremonies in the Great Hall, Dartington.

The students were awarded their foundation degrees and professional awards by David Coslett, deputy vice chancellor of Plymouth University.

Plymouth University awards all the degrees delivered at the college.

Prof Coslett said: "The graduation ceremonies were real celebrations of the fantastic achievements of the students at South Devon College.

"It was just the great setting at Dartington Hall, it was the confidence and energy of those graduating which made the occasion. It was a proud day for their families, college staff and Plymouth University."

The UPC Academic Partnership Colleges Student Award was awarded to computing student, Daniel Horsey from Torquay who will be progressing to Plymouth University to top up to honours level and is well placed to gain a first class degree.
