Hundreds of graduates were told of the bright futures ahead of them, inside the picturesque Great Yarmouth Minster.

The Great Yarmouth campus of the University of Suffolk held its graduation ceremony on Friday, where graduates received their degrees in front of beaming parents and family members.

Each graduate was welcomed with cheers, applause and the occasional whoop, as their hard work and dedication were acknowledged before a packed Minster.

Stuart Rimmer, principal of the university said it was a moment for the new alumni to 'enjoy, reflect and dream'.

He said: 'Receiving your degrees is the end of one dream, but also the chance to open new ones, and I urge you all to dream big.'
