Chris-Ahmad-IMG_3763Chris Ahmad was in the first group of students to graduate from Uxbridge College's HND in Interactive Media.The first students to complete Uxbridge College’s university-level HND in Interactive Media – which teaches the skills used to create the CGI special effects used in films and video games – joined their counterparts at the recent graduation ceremony.

The HND (Higher National Diploma) in Interactive Media has enabled a number of students to enter an Honours degree in the final year to study 3D CGI at Bournemouth University.


The interactive media course teaches students how to use specialized industry software to create 3D computised images. One project involved recreating a scene from the film Iron Man, where two students computer modelled the character’s robotic arm and chest plate. In another project, two students ‘placed’ a windmill in a field behind the College.

Students of all ages, including adults with families and jobs, graduated in Higher National Certificates (HNCs) and Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) in business, computing, engineering, and travel & tourism.

Higher Education qualifications improve career prospects and can also enable graduates to enter university, usually in the final year of a degree.

Each year around 50% of the College’s HND graduates go straight into the third year of an Honours degree, or fourth in the case of sandwich courses. The rest continue working or look for a new role at a senior or management level.

Laraine Smith, Principal of Uxbridge College, said:  “I feel incredibly proud of all our graduates this year – and every year – for everything they’ve achieved.

“Not only do around half Uxbridge College’s HND graduates go on to university, they go straight into the final year. The remainder find they have a great advantage in the job market, as these qualifications teach both the applied skills and theoretical knowledge required by employers.

“Many students have juggled family commitments, work and other demands during their studies and kept the plates spinning. Uxbridge College is delighted to be able to provide opportunities for people from all backgrounds, whatever other challenges they may have in their lives.”
