The first group of 2019 Fife College graduates celebrate outside the St Bryce Kirk in Kirkcaldy.  

Students and staff are this week celebrating at one of the biggest highlights on the Fife College calendar – Graduation Week.

Five ceremonies are taking place at St Bryce Kirk, Kirkcaldy this week with over 500 students crossing the stage to graduate in a range of qualifications including degrees and diplomas.

Family and friends of students, along with staff and guests of the College are celebrating the students’ achievements – with over 2,000 people attending the events throughout the week. 

After each ceremony graduates and guests enjoyed a drinks reception in the Atrium of the College’s Kirkcaldy Campus.

The first student to cross the stage at the ceremony one on Tuesday was Chantelle Arnold from Kirkcaldy.   

Chantelle, who graduated with HNC Childcare and Administrative Practice, said: “It was really nerve racking being the first across stage at the ceremony but the whole thing was amazing – I couldn’t stop smiling!”

Chantelle (20) added: “My course was challenging at times but I really enjoyed it, especially the placement. I’m hoping to go onto university next year to study midwifery." 

Hugh Hall, Principal of Fife College, said: “Graduation week is always a special time of the year for Fife College.  Each ceremony allows us time to reflect and celebrate the fantastic achievements of our students. 

“The College is delighted with the quality and number of students graduating this year in a wide range of subjects.

“We are very proud that our graduates will go on to make a real impact on society and reap the rewards of the investment they have made in their studies at Fife College.”
