The Lifelong Learning Centre’s mission to open up the University to students from non-traditional backgrounds, offering them the opportunity to progress into academic faculties at Leeds, is realised through the achievement of our students who go on to attain their degree of choice.

It’s always difficult to pick individuals for mention but here are just a couple of the inspirational stories (from the many that could be told) of former LLC students who graduated earlier this month.

Laura Heskins started on the LLC’s part-time diploma in Business Management in September 2010. Despite having to commute from Sheffield, Laura demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the course and her own development – her high marks helped her to achieve a Distinction in the Diploma and progress to Leeds University Business School from where she has graduated with a First Class degree.

Also graduating this year are five students who successfully progressed to the Department of Arabic, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies from short courses previously delivered in the local community as part of our short course programme in Arabic, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies. We would like to share their joy and congratulate them on their success, and mention one student in particular, Haroon Bashir, who has secured a place at the University of Oxford to study for a Masters degree.

Congratulations to them and to all those receiving hard-won awards this summer!
