Celebrating our graduates
21 July 2017
The Cardiff University School of Earth and Ocean Sciences official graduation ceremony took place on Thursday 20th July.
Graduates and staff donned their caps and gowns for the official ceremony which took place in St. David’s Hall. Afterwards, students and their families were welcomed to marquees outside the iconic Main Building for the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences graduation reception. An afternoon tea themed buffet was enjoyed while students, staff and guests mingled in the marquee and posed for photos.
At the reception, a selection of prizes were also awarded to students across all degree programmes.
We would like to congratulate all our graduates on successfully completing their degrees and wish them all the best for the future.
Students can keep in touch by registering with the Cardiff University Alumni Network.
