A student from Glasgow has become the fifth and final child from the same family to graduate from the University of Glasgow.
Meghan Byrne graduates on Thursday 20 June with a Masters of Social Sciences (Politics) with Honours. In doing so she follows in the footsteps of her three older sisters and older brother who are all alumni of the University.
Sister Samantha received a degree in Accounting and Finance in 2005, Daniel a Law degree in 2009, Erin a Politics degree in 2010, and Helen a Parasitology degree in 2012.
Meghan, from Anderston in Glasgow is now planning to take a year out of education before returning to the University of Glasgow to do a Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching.
Meghan said: “All my brothers and sisters enjoyed studying at the University and I was always determined that I would one day follow them and study here.
“I loved studying Politics and I’m passionate about inspiring the next generation and I’d love to become a teacher. Although right now I’m going to take some time out of full-time education, I think I’ll come back to the University to do my Postgraduate Diploma.”
