Campus gets star approval

Have your say

ACTOR Sir Patrick Stewart has praised graduates of a Barnsley university campus.

The television and film star presided over the biggest graduation day at University Campus Barnsley, which is part of The University of Huddersfield, as students were presented with their degrees at The Civic.

Sir Patrick said: “This year’s graduation was something of a milestone because the campus had to add a third ceremony to the day’s events, to be able to cater for all the successful students – well over 200 of them, in a wide range of subjects.

“That makes for a much busier schedule, of course, but I didn’t mind because I like meeting the students and the extra numbers mean that UCB is being really successful at recruitment.”
