Welcome to the vibrant city of London, where dreams come true, and futures are created! Today, we celebrate a momentous occasion - the University of Sunderland in London’s (UoSiL) autumn graduation ceremony. A time filled with pride, joy, and reflection as we honour the incredible achievements of our Class of 2023.
Join us on our journey through this life-changing event that marks the beginning of new chapters for our talented graduates. Live from the Southwark Cathedral close to the iconic London Bridge, we prepare ourselves to heartfelt speeches and unforgettable moments. It is time to celebrate success of our students and get ready to experience an extraordinary day like no other!
We are a life-changing University
For many graduates, this milestone represents more than just receiving a certificate. It marks the culmination of years of hard work, dedication, and personal growth. A symbol for the start of a new chapter in their lives – one filled with endless possibilities and opportunities. As students cross the stage to receive their well-earned degrees, they are filled with a sense of accomplishment and pride. The knowledge gained during their time at UoSiL will equip them with valuable industry-leading skills and life-changing insights, preparing them for their future careers.
"As you step into the next chapter of your lives, remember that every ending is the beginning of something new and extraordinary. Your degree certificate is simply a piece of paper, it is your education and your attitude that will prepare you for the challenges and joys that lie ahead. Deliberately seek out and embrace the unknown with courage, for it is within that uncertainty that you'll discover your true potential. Congratulations, graduates of 2023, your future has yet to be written by you." – Geoff Paul, Assistant Director
But it is not just about academic achievements. The friendships formed and connections made throughout university also contribute to this life-changing experience. Students have had the chance to meet people from all aspects of life, forming bonds that will last long after graduation day.
As graduates file into Southwark Cathedral for their commencement ceremony, they are surrounded by an atmosphere charged with excitement and anticipation. Family members, friends, lecturers, and staff cheer from the audience as their names are called out – celebrating individual accomplishments and acknowledging the collective journey taken by all.
Class of 2023
We close 2023 with our remarkable group of autumn graduates who have achieved so much during their time here. Along with our graduates earlier in the year from our first graduation in February to our Summer graduation in June. These students have not only excelled academically but also made a long-lasting impact on our campus community.
"You'll find friends here, it's a special place here. Take it easy on yourself and you'll be fine." - Oluwatosin Solarin, President of Student Union London 2023
And to all members of the Class of 2023: congratulations, we are proud of you! Your hard work has paid off, and we cannot wait to see where your future endeavours take you. We know that you are destined for wonderful things and that your time at University of Sunderland in London has prepared you well for whatever comes next.
