The atmosphere at the ceremony was one of joy and celebration as students from diverse academic backgrounds were honoured for their dedication, hard work, and outstanding academic accomplishments. Among the highlights of the event was the presentation of the Vice-Chancellor Awards to four exceptional individuals who have made remarkable contributions to the communities.

The recipients of the Vice-Chancellor Awards – Sanchita Ain, Manish Michel, Ankit Mehrotra, and Anushree Srivastava – were granted a unique opportunity to engage in insightful discussions with the University’s Vice-Chancellor, enriching their educational experience and leaving a lasting impact on the University’s legacy.

Professor Anthony Forster, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Essex, expressed immense pride and said: “Today, as we honour the achievements of our graduates in India, we reaffirm our longstanding commitment to providing a world-class education that transcends borders. Congratulations to each student for their remarkable accomplishments, as they embark on a journey to become global citizens and ambassadors of change.”

The ceremony provided a platform for graduates to reflect on their academic journey, express gratitude to their professors, mentors and loved ones, and embark on new beginnings with a renewed sense of purpose and determination.

As the sun set on this memorable day, the University of Essex reaffirmed its dedication to providing world-class education and nurturing future leaders who will make meaningful contributions to society.

As part of this mission the University of Essex is now offering extra support for Indian Masters students by launching a new health bursary to cover the cost of the UK’s immigration health surcharge for the duration of their postgraduate course. This is in addition to the University’s Academic Excellence Scholarship for India residents
