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 the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama for the Welsh School of Architecture graduation reception. Refreshments were enjoyed while students, staff and guests mingled in the College’s foyer and took photos.
Valerie Owen OBE, a multi-disciplinary expert in economic and sustainable development, was invited to give this year’s graduation speech, after which selected prizes were awarded to students at BSc, MArch and MA/Diploma levels.
Following the ceremony and reception, students and their families were invited to visit the Welsh School of Architecture summer exhibition in the Bute Building.
We would like to congratulate all our graduates on successfully completing their degrees and wish them all the best for the future.
