A Bexleyheath student has completed his masters degree after years of study at the University of Bristol.

Joshua Mudie recently graduated with a first class honours degree in civil engineering.

The former Dartford Grammar School for Boys student has been supported with a scholarship from the Rochester Bridge Trust, a charity which exists to maintain two bridges on the A2.

He is one of the first students receiving the scholarship to graduate.

Mr Mudie is now planning to study towards a PhD.

Bridge clerk Sue Threader said: “It gives me great pleasure to hear of Joshua’s success. The trust participates in the Arkwright Scholars scheme as a way of supporting dedicated young people on their journey to becoming civil engineers so to see such an achievement from our first student is good news.

“Well done to Joshua, I look forward to hearing about many more achievements in the future.”
