We can’t really believe it, but Siren co-founder Sammy Siddique is all grown up! Not in the literal sense of course, but she’ll be graduating today from the one and only Swansea University, along with more than 500 other undergraduate and postgraduate students at Swansea University’s Winter Degree and Award Congregations on the 26th and 27th of January.

The Winter Congregations, for students who have successfully completed their studies since July 2011, will take place at the city’s Brangwyn Hall, where students will be joined by their families and friends, University officials, academic staff, representatives of the Students’ Union, civic officers and local dignitaries.

Degrees and awards are to be received by students from the College of Arts and Humanities, College of Engineering, College of Science, and the College of Business, Economics and Law on Thursday and by students from the College of Human and Health Sciences and the Department of Adult Continuing Education on Friday.

Professor Alan Speight, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience and Academic Quality Enhancement at Swansea University, said, ‘Our Degree and Award Congregations allow us to recognise publicly the high level of commitment and hard work demonstrated by our students, which has enabled them to achieve the qualifications and higher level skills required to pursue a fulfilling and rewarding career and achieve their personal ambitions.

‘I would like to congratulate each and every one of our students receiving an award at this year’s Winter Congregations and wish them every success as they progress in their chosen field.’

Watch out if you’re Sinning this evening- Sammy now has four letters after her name (MA, BA) and she’s taking no prisoners!

Congratulations to all students receiving an award, we wish you the best of luck for the future!
