Summer Graduation 2023

Well done! to our Scholars graduating last week

However, a few people graduate in the summer, and I was glad to be able to attend graduation for the first time and applaud them on!

I didn’t attend my own Masters graduation, so this was my first chance to wear the UoN robes. I ended up at the front of the procession and sitting on the front row of the staff sitting on the podium!

Of the hundreds of students gaining their awards, only 5 or 6 were MedEd Scholars, including one of our PhD Scholars. 

My hands hurt from clapping!

I managed to catch up with 2 of our Scholars graduating with Masters in Medical Education (photo above), but I was sorry to miss everyone else. It was very busy, with lots of vet and medical students and their families. 

If you are due to finish your studies this summer, then pencil in the Winter Graduation on Wednesday 13th Dec 2023.
