Graduation 2011: what's happening when

Posted by mjs76 at Jul 04, 2011 02:13 PM |
The highpoint of the academic year: reward for the hard work of our students and a chance to honour the great and good.

The Summer 2011 Graduation Ceremonies take place over four days from 12 to 15 July. Students from right across the University will receive various levels of degrees and we will honour nine notable individuals who have achieved prominence at national or international level and/or made significant contributions to the University and City of Leicester.

Online registration for the ceremonies has now closed. Please contact the Graduation Team asap if you have not registered but wish to attend (this cannot be guaranteed) or if you have registered but can't make it to the ceremony.
