Edinburgh College honoured around 700 students at its annual Graduation ceremony at the city's Usher Hall, cheered on by friends and family on Friday 30 September.
Students from across the college's curriculum celebrated as they received their awards and said farewell to their time at Edinburgh College.
Across three ceremonies over the day, students graduated in subjects covering business; construction and building crafts; creative industries; engineering; health, wellbeing and social sciences; and tourism and hospitality. Teaching staff at the college also picked up professional development awards.
The best-performing students from each of the college's curriculum centres received awards for academic excellence from the college's Principal Annette Bruton and Regional Chair Ian McKay. Prizes for outstanding citizenship were awarded to students by the college's graduation robing company, Marston. And college partners including NHS Lothian, The Merchant Company of Edinburgh and the Scottish Qualifications Authority handed out further prizes for student achievement.
Edinburgh College Principal Annette Bruton said: "Graduation was a wonderful day. It was a huge honour to share the stage with our graduates and to join their families and friends in the celebrations.
"Achieving anything in education takes an enormous amount of dedication, willpower and often sacrifice, so every one of our graduates deserves every success. They are now going on to careers or further studies, equipped by their time with us to achieve the futures they want in whatever they choose to do. They're also joining a large group of alumni that has made its mark across our country and the world in every sphere, making valuable contributions to society.
