Congratulations to our January 2020 graduates

Posted by nm365 at Jan 20, 2020 11:55 AM |

Over 2500 students graduated last week, in a joyful atmosphere despite the weather, at De Montfort Hall.

Spot your friends, look forward to your graduation day, or enjoy a happy moment by viewing our videos and photos on Facebook and Twitter.

It was the first University of Leicester graduation ceremony for President and Vice Chancellor Professor Nishan Canagarajah whose advice to the class of 2020 included the Mark Twain quote: "Twenty years from now you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
