More than 3,500 students will graduate from our University this week, along with some eminent experts who will receive Honorary Degrees, at the summer award ceremonies taking place in the City.
From Tuesday to Friday, undergraduate and masters degree students, as well as PhDs, will mark the end of their studies at the celebratory event, taking place at the Theatre Royal, while the Abbey continues to undergo renovations.
Among the eminent experts to receive Honorary Degrees from the University, will be Paralympian skier and Bath graduate Kelly Gallagher MBE, Dr Nick Hall, instrumental in developing the Bath Institute for Rheumatic Diseases (BIRD), and renowned astrophysicist Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell.
The University Chancellor, HRH The Earl of Wessex will be in attendance at a number of the ceremonies.
Commenting ahead of the graduation ceremonies, the Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Ian White, said: “I’d like to congratulate warmly all our students graduating this summer, and thank all the staff who have enabled them to succeed in their studies. One of the great pleasures for me since returning to work at the University has been to learn more of the activities and achievements of our students.
“We look forward to sharing in celebrations with friends and family and wishing our graduates well in the next stage of their lives, as they become part of our world-wide alumni community.”
