Southwark CathedralWelcome to our first graduation ceremony for 2024. Our winter graduations took place over the course of two days, where we celebrated our graduate’s culmination of years of hard work and dedication. It's a testament to the resilience, dedication, and triumph of our students.  

Our staff, lecturers, and guests (dressed sophisticatedly) gathered at the Southwark Cathedral to celebrate the successes of our students. It’s a time for the entire university community to come together, so we invite all students, faculty, alumni, and families to join us in honouring the achievements of the Class of 2024.

Let's make our graduations in 2024 an event to remember, with heartfelt celebration of achievements, and bright futures ahead. 

We are so pleased and proud of everyone graduating here today, because what we are celebrating is the commitment, the enthusiasm, the engagement of what our students brought to their studies and through all that they have achieved, they are ready to leave and make a difference for the better to the world around them.
