The University of Nottingham has celebrated the graduation of its 250,000th student.
The 250,000 graduates date back to the days of University College Nottingham, founded in 1881. The total figure includes graduates from the University’s campuses in China and Malaysia, alongside students studying in the UK.
Victoria Rowley, a first class LLB Hons Law with American Law graduate, was the 250,000th University of Nottingham student to graduate on the final day of this years’ summer graduation.
“I’m so proud to be representing the university that has given me so much”
Victoria is said to be “really honoured” to share the graduate milestone with the University.
She said: “It’s great to be part of this amazing community of Nottingham alumni all around the world. I’m so proud to be representing the university that has given me so much and helped prepare me for an exciting new career”.
Victoria was also awarded a Distinction in American Law in recognition of her academic success whilst studying for her year abroad at the University of Connecticut.
After receiving the J C Smith Scholarship, Victoria also plans to support the University’s scholarship scheme.
“We are delighted to welcome Victoria as the 250,000th graduate of the University to our alumni community”
Malvika Johal, Head of Alumni Relations, said: “Having studied on three continents, Victoria exemplifies the experience of students at Britain’s Global University. We are delighted to welcome Victoria as the 250,000th graduate of the University to our alumni community.
“With alumni representing the University of Nottingham in over 200 countries, our students are able to tap into a wealth of expertise and knowledge wherever they are in the world. Our alumni are an asset to the University and we are proud to have such a broad reaching and connected community.”
