Hundreds to collect degrees at Wrexham Glyndwr University's 2017 graduation ceremonies

31 October 2017


Years of hard work and dedication will be celebrated by hundreds of graduates as they collect degrees from Wrexham Glyndwr University this week.

The university’s 2017 graduation ceremonies are taking place in the William Aston Hall from Wednesday 1 November to Friday 3 November.

Awards are being handed out across five ceremonies covering all areas of academic study at the North Wales institution.

First up are students from Built Environment, Education and Psychology on Wednesday morning, followed by Business in the afternoon.

Professor Maria Hinfelaar, Vice Chancellor of Wrexham Glyndwr University, said: “Graduation is one of the highlights of the year for a university Vice Chancellor.

“Obtaining a degree is a major achievement and quite rightly celebrated with such happiness and pride by everyone graduating, and their friends and family.

“Some of our students will be staying with us to study further, others will be starting a new journey as they embark on their chosen careers. We wish all of them the best of luck and a successful future.”

Two more ceremonies are being held at Wrexham Glyndwr University on Thursday, Applied Science, Health and Social Science in the morning and art and design, communications technology, computing, humanities and sports science later in the day.

The 2017 ceremonies conclude on Friday with students from animal and plant biology and engineering.

Each ceremony will feature prizes awarded to students for outstanding achievement during their studies.

Awards are made at every level from certificates and foundation degrees up to PhDs.
