On the 3rd - 4thof May, over 2,000 graduates and their guests joined the University of Wales to mark the successful completion of their studies.
Scholars from across the globe descended upon the iconic Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay for the two-day event to join in the graduation celebrations which the University was hosting there.
Each graduate was greeted by Vice-Chancellor Professor Medwin Hughes, together with the Chair of the University’s Council and other senior officers and academic staff.
Graduates attending the celebrations made the journey from a vast array of countries; indeed, the multicultural nature of the celebration is itself testament to the University’s strong international ties.
Since its inception in 1998, this vibrant annual event has continued to grow in size as graduates and their families and friends from across the globe gather together and join in.
The celebrations were also streamed live on to the University’s website, enabling friends and family who were unable to make the journey to Cardiff see their loved ones cross the stage, capped and gowned.
