University College Jersey students celebrate success

05 October 2023

The University College Jersey (UCJ) graduation ceremony for the Class of 2023 - sponsored by MasonBreese - is taking place this Friday at St Helier Town Hall. This year, UCJ celebrates the achievements of 129 graduates from various academic disciplines, marking a significant milestone in their academic journeys and future careers.

Of those graduating, 97% achieved a pass rate for Honours degrees, with 76% achieving a 1st or 2.1 classification and 51% earning a 1st class degree.

Conducting the ceremony’s commencement address will be Peter Williams, who has held leading roles in companies such as Cineworld, boohoo and Domino's, as well as being the former CEO of Selfridges. Mr Williams is now a non-executive chairman of Mister Spex, based in Berlin. He will be talking to the graduates about the lessons he has learnt over his career.

The graduates will receive their awards at the Town Hall and then parade up King Street, exiting at Library Place via the Royal Square, heading for The Royal Yacht hotel, where the celebrations will continue.

The local community is encouraged to join in the celebration by lining the parade route, cheering on the graduates and showing their support for the Class of 2023. UCJ would like to thank MasonBreese for their outstanding support and extend heartfelt congratulations to the Class of 2023, and their proud friends and families.

Deputy Inna Gardiner, Minister for Children and Education, said: “I’d like to congratulate all the students graduating, who have shown dedication, and perseverance, which is reflected in the excellent results they’ve achieved.

“These graduates will go on to have a positive impact on Island life throughout their careers and, in many cases, will be providing the much-needed skills and support for key industries we need for the future. I wish them every success for the future.”
