A graduation ceremony was held at Alton Towers on an actual rollercoaster
And you thought your graduation was lit
In a perfect metaphor for post uni life, a bunch of grads received their degrees and immediately plunged directly downwards at high speed.
The full video is on The Tab Instagram story.
The Staffordshire University grads, having finished their degrees in Visitor Attraction and Resort Management, somehow managed to cling to their gowns and mortar boards during the 68mph ride on Oblivion at Alton Towers.
Simon Ratcliffe, Assistant Recruitment and Learning and Development Manager at Alton Towers, said: “We believe this will be the first ceremony like this to take place in the world.”
Oblivion was the world's first vertical drop roller-coaster, and sees riders suspended over the 60-metre drop before being plummeted and experiencing a G force of 4.5.
One of the new grads, Charlotte Hall, who achieved a 2:1 in Visitor Attraction and Resort Management, said having the graduation ceremony on the roller-coaster was "really exciting and such a fitting way to end the course".
She described the graduation as "unique and unforgettable". She has also been offered a job working at Alton Towers now she has graduated.
Carol Southall, Senior Lecturer and Course Leader, said students who study the course are given the chance to experience a diverse range of job roles and gives them an "edge" when they graduate.
Staffordshire University is only half an hour drive away from Alton Towers and the university is "extremely proud" of the partnership the two have and the "benefits" it brings for students.
