Alumnus Pravin is currently a doctoral researcher in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Bristol. He was recently invited to join the stage party at the university graduation as an honorary guest.
‘This graduation ceremony took place after I had been awarded my own three degrees: BEng Aeronautical Engineering, MSc Engineering with Innovation and Entrepreneurship and MRes Aerospace Engineering from three world famous universities, the University of Brighton, UCL and the University of Manchester respectively. I wasn’t able to attend those any of those graduation ceremonies because of the cost involved, which was painful for me.
Although I wasn’t able to attend my own graduation ceremonies, yesterday I attended a ceremony and was able to congratulate 3 students on their achievements. Seeing the students walking onto the stage made me emotional.
The University of Bristol kindly ordered me a Manchester University graduation gown! Bristol has been kind to me and has given me so much To be grateful for, and this is one of the highlights. Thank you University of Bristol!’
