The University of Essex celebrates its 100,000th graduate later.

Sofie Samuelsson from Sweden will graduate during the 4pm ceremony when she receives her Masters in Linguistics.

“Being a graduate of Essex has given me an amazing Masters on my CV,” said Sofie. “Linguistics is highly recommended at Essex and so it is great that I got my degree from here and that I did so well.

“I also like that I’ll always have this connection to Colchester through the University. It’s given me great connections for the future.”

Sofie is currently working at Universal Web Design, based at the University’s Knowledge Gateway research and technology park, as a search engine optimisation specialist.
