Students from City, University of London’s postgraduate and research courses celebrated at their online graduation ceremonies
Roughly 2,000 graduates from all five of City’s Schools donned their virtual mortarboards and filled online Zoom rooms, unmuting to cheer their course mates, families and friends.
While markedly different to previous years, the four days of online graduation ceremonies allowed academic staff and proud relatives to celebrate the success of City graduates, in what has been an extremely challenging year.
Graduating from home was Emily Parham, (MS Speech and Language Therapy 2021), who tweeted: "Today I graduated in true Covid style Congratulations to all of my MSc SLT colleagues, we did it."
The celebrations also included messages from President, Professor Sir Paul Curran; Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal, Chancellor of the University of London: The Rt. Hon Lord Mayor Alderman William Russell; Saqlain Riaz, Students’ Union President; and the Deans of City’s five Schools.
