Glitz and glamour as students win awards at Lewes ceremony
Students dressed their best for a glamorous awards ceremony celebrating their hard work and achievements in the past academic year.
More than 300 students, staff and family members gathered together for the Access to Higher Education Annual Awards Ceremony at the campus in Lewes last month.
Attendees were greeted with a drinks and canapés reception before students were presented with their qualification certificates by headteacher and chief executive of Sussex Downs College, Melanie Hunt.
She said: “I would like to congratulate all of our Access to Higher Education students on their achievements, the majority of whom are now going on to further their studies at university.
“Their hard work and commitment, together with the expertise and support of the brilliant staff here at Sussex Downs College, has ensured their futures are looking very bright indeed.”
Access to Higher Education was also celebrated at the Eastbourne campus where another 300 students and their relatives celebrated the successful completion of their courses.
The course is for people aged 19 and above who would like to study at university but for whatever reason don’t have the qualifications to get a place.
The courses prepare people for degree level study and take around 34 weeks to complete on a part-time basis.
Sussex Downs College offers access courses in a variety of subjects at both its Eastbourne and Lewes campuses and its flexibility means students can attend classes during the day or in the evening to fit around their other commitments.
