Graduation 2012
Graduation – inspiring stories

Do you know any students graduating this year who have an inspiring story to tell? The Public Relations team are looking to hear from students willing to have contact with the media during Graduation week and feature in our special edition of Cardiff News.

Some examples of stories covered during previous ceremonies include:

  • Students who have excelled or have completed newsworthy research
  • Students who have overcome major hurdles to achieve their degree
  • Students about to embark on a new venture, for example high profile career start or around the world trip

These stories will enable the University to highlight the brilliant achievements of our students and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

Please encourage any students you know who you think have a great story to tell to complete this form and return it to

Travel Survey Prize Presentation

The winners of the Student and Staff Travel Survey prize draw have been presented with their prizes by Deputy Vice-Chancellor Elizabeth Treasure.

Jennifer Geroni from the Innovation and Enterprise team was presented with a Samsung 19" LDC TV and 1st year Geography and Planning student Robert Thomas won an iPod Nano.

The Student and Staff Travel Survey ran earlier this year and received a great response with more than 4,000 staff and students taking part.

Responses from the survey are currently being analysed and a full report will be made available on the Sustainable Travel web pages in September.

Professor Treasure said: ""We are extremely pleased to have received such a high number of responses to the recent Travel Survey.  Thank you to all staff and students who participated.  The results and feedback received will assist in shaping the University's Travel Plan going forward."
