An aspiring occupational therapist was the 200,000th student to graduate from her university.

Roshni Vekaria, of Edgware, spent three years at the University of Southampton and is the 200,000th graduate since its records began 150 years ago.

The 21-year-old was congratulated by University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Don Nutbeam, during her official graduation ceremony.

She said: “Southampton was really good with fun and easy-going socialising opportunities both day and night within friend groups.

“I enjoyed meeting a diverse range of students from different backgrounds and learning a lot about others and myself.

“I hope that this degree will lead me to getting a job as an Occupational Therapist in a hospital setting where I can work on rotation in various fields.”
