Summer Graduation 2019

7 August 2019

Congratulations to all of our 2019 graduates and graduate prize winners!

On Wednesday 24th July, the School of Psychological Science celebrated the graduation of our final year undergraduates along with some of our postgraduate students. This year also marked our first graduation as our newly formed faculty, the Faculty of Life Sciences. 

Professor Alan Baddeley also joined our graduates to receive his honorary degree. We were delighted that he could come along for the duration of the day and he even shared some words of wisdom with us. 

After the ceremony at the Wills Memorial Building, we invited our graduates and their families to join us in a celebration which included a School Prize Giving. The reception took place in our building, the Priory Road Complex, where many of our students would have spent much of their time gathering data for their final research project. 

The day was an overall success and we are extremely proud of each and every one of our graduates. We hope that they will stay in touch and we wish them the best of luck for the future!
