City celebrates graduation
Around 3,300 University of Wolverhampton students and their family and friends are set to attend graduation ceremonies at the city’s Grand Theatre.
A total of 17 ceremonies will take place between tomorrow (Thursday 17 Sept) until Friday September 25, to celebrate academic achievements.
Honorary awards will also be presented to individuals from various fields, including music, sport, health, education and law, in recognition of their significant achievements. Recipients include Paralympian Danielle Brown MBE, Jazz singer and Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal, a University of Wolverhampton alumnus, and former Government Minister Clare Short, who is now active in international development work.
There will also be a number of academic staff receiving professorships.
Each graduation ceremony will begin with a procession of honorary graduates, senior University staff and governors and invited guests through the city.
After each ceremony, students and their families have been invited to attend a drinks reception in the Harrison Learning Centre, the University’s main library, to end their graduation day.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Geoff Layer, said: “It is a privilege to share this important event with our graduates and to celebrate their achievements.
“I wish all our graduates a prosperous and successful future. They are the best ambassadors for what this University stands for.”
