Awards will be presented to Postgraduate and Institute of Health Professions students at the three ceremonies.

The University will also welcome students from overseas partner institutions in India, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates to the ceremony on Wednesday.

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 University's Chancellor's Hall, to end their graduation day.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Geoff Layer, said: “Graduation is always a special occasion for our students and their families and friends.

“Our graduates enter a range of interesting careers and we are proud that 96% are in employment or further study six months after leaving us. We wish everyone receiving their awards a happy and successful future.”
