Graduation 2018

Posted by rmt22 at Jul 13, 2018 09:25 AM |
We would like to congratulate all of our students graduating next week

Over the next week we will be celebrating your achievements at our summer graduation ceremonies. Hundreds of talented students will walk across the stage to be recognised in front of their peers, friends and family.

This is just one more step in your journey as part of our Leicester family. Whether you choose to stay with us and study further, or step out into the world of work, be assured that we've got your back.

Every single one of you has worked hard, played hard, and sacrificed to achieve this so enjoy it, milk it and reflect on your successes. We're giving every single one of you the chance to see your moment on stage, free of charge. Friends, family around the world and colleagues can also watch the ceremony online as it happens.

You’ll have the chance to listen to our honorary graduates as they take the stage. This summer we will be honouring QI and Bake-Off presenter Sandi Toksvig; broadcaster and former cricketer Jonathan Agnew (‘Aggers’); space scientist and BBC Sky at Night presenter Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock; Leicester entrepreneur Dorothy Francis; Professor Fiona Stafford, literature academic and frequent voice on BBC Radio 4; and Professor Sir John Savill, Chief Executive of the Medical Research Council. They have all achieved exceptional things in their careers and we have no doubt that you will too.

And make sure that you take advantage of all the opportunities available to you. You are now part of our alumni family, joining such names as novelists Adele Parks and Malcolm Bradbury, politician Natalie Bennett, Game of Thrones actor Will Tudor and many other distinguished figures from the world of academia. Stay connected through our alumni team and let us know about your successes.

On the day of your graduation you will receive a personalised video clip of the moment you cross the stage and officially graduate from the University of Leicester. It will be available to download shortly after your ceremony has finished and you'll be emailed when it is ready.

Don't forget to share your pictures using #LeicesterGrad18. But most of all, make the most of your opportunities. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Congratulations, and use it well.
