Class of 2009

04 July 2009

Graduates celebrating

Cardiff’s graduation ceremonies will be broadcast live to the city for the first time this year in a unique venture with BBC Cymru Wales.

Members of the public as well as friends and families of graduates will be able to watch the 2009 degree congregations as they happen, thanks to coverage on the BBC Big Screen in the Hayes, Cardiff.

Located outside St David’s Hall - the University’s graduation venue - the 25m square screen will broadcast each of the ceremonies live creating a distinct viewing environment in the city centre.

As well as watching the class of 2009 graduate, viewers will be able to see the award of honorary fellowships, given by the University to individuals who have achieved international distinction in their field.

The University’s graduation ceremonies take place at 10.30am and 2.00pm on 7/8 July and at 10.30am, 1.30pm and 4.30pm on 13/14/15 July. Cardiff has an active public engagement programme designed to bring all aspects of University life to the wider community.

The ceremonies will also be broadcast live on the University’s website for friends and family of graduates from around the world to view.

The BBC Big Screen is one of a number of screens located in cities across the UK. Each BBC Big Screen is customised to reflect life in its home community. Part of a world-leading public service broadcasting media concept, the screens will ultimately broadcast the London 2012 Olympic Games.
