A man with Asperger syndrome who started at the college at 16 with no qualifications has earned a foundation degree in music production.
During his time at the college, Steven Philip, 26, fronted a national autism campaign in front of hundreds of people at the House of Commons.
Mr Philip, of Weston-super-Mare, said: "Before I came to Weston College I was completely shy and reserved. I did not have many friends.
"Being here has given me confidence and social skills. I don't need help with academic work but do with the social side. Weston College is like my second home."
