A spectacular week of graduations at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) was rounded off in style as students collected their degrees watched by proud family and friends.
Today was the turn of students from the Faculty of Arts, Design and Humanities and the Faculty of Technology who crossed the stage to claps, cheers and even a confetti cannon set off to mark the occasion.
DMU’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Andy Collop told them: “Go out and make the future. Your future.”
As the ceremonies came to a close, the new graduates hugged and took selfies on stage with friends and family.
Game Art Design graduate Thomas Day tweeted: “Graduation Day – what an achievement!”

English and Journalism BA (Hons) graduate, Jack Hawkins said: “It’s been a life changing experience studying at DMU. I’ve met so many new people and developed friendships very quickly because of my experiences.
“Playing Lacrosse for DMU has been one of my major highlights, as being involved in these extra-curricular activities helps shape you as a person.
“I’ve been so lucky to create such happy memories here thanks to my degree and everything I’ve done outside of it.
“The highlight of my day has been graduating, being here to share the day with my family. It’s an amazing experience.”
This week has seen hundreds of students graduate from DMU and honorary degrees presented to Matt Hampson of the Matt Hampson Foundation and Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri.
