Completing any degree is hard work, but it is especially challenging when you are doing it in your spare time whilst also having a full time job. So I was very proud when my buddy Matt invited me to attend his graduation ceremony after gaining a distinction in his Masters degree in Information Security from Royal Holloway. Interestingly the degree is part of the school of mathematics rather than the school of computing. Here are Matt with his Mum, Dad and Fiance looking appropriately chuffed.
Time for the group photo. Matt is in the middle.
What could be more traditional that the Mortar Board (hat) throwing ceremony.
After spending 4 years earning his Masters, Matt decides to continue wearing his mortar board to the amusement of many passers by.
