Joseph Price, 30, received an Academic Excellence award after demonstrating exceptional learning on his Social Science course.

The ceremony at Exeter Cathedral also marked 50 years since the college was named the UK's first tertiary college - one incorporating the secondary school sixth form, and vocational courses.

Joseph said, "The evening was fabulous and it was a lot more grand than I was expecting.

"It was a pleasure to come here. I love Exeter College and I feel like it really brought out the best in me and I really learned how to learn here.

"My tutors were incredible and treated me really well and it was definitely the best educational experience I've had."

Awards were presented to 19 other students from the 'class of 2019', recognising achievements in further and higher education, apprenticeships and personal triumph over adversity.
