Oxford University student Kentaro Ikeda graduated on Saturday almost six years after a brutal attack in the city left him with brain damage.

As reported in Saturday’s Oxford Mail, the 32-year-old flew in from Japan with his mother Reiko Ikeda for the ceremony at Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre.

It was a proud moment for Mr Ikeda’s family and friends as the St Edmund Hall student received a masters degree in science and education.

Mr Ikeda had part of his skull removed after being hit with a metal bike lock and left for dead while he was cycling in University Parks, Oxford, on July 31, 2008.
