Students from University Campus Barnsley and Barnsley College were honoured at a graduation ceremony.
The students took part in a procession from the Old Mill Lane campus to The Civic, led by a brass band.
The ceremony was for students who have completed Higher Education courses at UCB and Barnsley College in the last year.
It was attended by students, their families and VIP guests including senior college staff, the Mayor of Barnsley Coun Tim Shepherd, the High Sheriff of South Yorkshire John Bramah and the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire Barry Eldred.
Principal Colin Booth said: “It was a real pleasure to welcome the graduands and their guests to the ceremony and we are very proud of their achievements.”
