What an amazing week! Graduation 2018 was the biggest graduation the University has ever held and it was the first time the event increased to 15 degree ceremonies over five days.
Our distinguished Honorary Graduates joined 3,730 students and 7,600 guests for the highlight of the University’s calendar.
