A young woman is about to embark on her pharmaceutical career after completing four years at university and studying in Gorleston.

Rebecca Wigmore graduated from Cambridge University in June with a first class masters degree in chemical engineering and has secured her first job at Glaxo Smith Kline in Ware, Hertfordshire, starting in August.

She previously attended Cliff Park High School and East Norfolk Sixth Form to secure the grades for her degree in Cambridge.

A typical day at university would include morning lectures, afternoon laboratory sessions that were followed by a one-to-one supervision with a college fellow and then report writing and personal study.

Following the graduation ceremony at Senate House, guests were invited to attend a garden reception in the grounds of Murray Edwards Ladies College where Rebecca had spent her time studying throughout her degree.
