Doors will open at 5.30pm, giving students a chance to chat to friends and academic staff, enjoy the refreshments and have their photograph taken by our official photographer. Professional photographs will be free to download from the UCB website following the event.
At 7pm, students will sit with their classmates as Alex Lofthouse, UCB’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Performance & Partnerships) calls individuals to the stage to congratulate them and have a commemorative photograph taken. Vice-Chancellor and Principal Prof Ray Linforth will also be on stage to congratulate students on their achievement.
The evening also sees the announcement of Student of the Year and Memorial Awards for outstanding effort and achievement in each academic school, including Apprenticeships and for English and maths.
