Chloe Hedley achieved a First Class Honours in her degree in Clinical Psychology and was among those to have completed their studies at the University of Worcester in 2020. She is now employed as a Mental Health Employment Specialist at Shropshire Council.
“I feel really proud of myself [in achieving First Class Honours],” said the 23-year-old former Marches School pupil. “I am really happy that my hard work paid off. It was a shame that my university experience ended the way it did, but the lectures were still going ahead online, and we still had support from tutors via email which was good.”
The University's Deputy Vice Chancellor and Provost, Professor Sarah Greer, said: “The class of 2020 faced some unique challenges in completing their final year, in very difficult external circumstances. I congratulate them all on their degrees, earned through their hard work and dedication in the face of adversity. I would also thank our outstanding academic staff who worked really hard to support students to achieve their full potential. Our students who earned a First Class Honours should rightly feel very proud of their outstanding achievements and I wish them all the very best in their future careers.”
