Graduation

Graduation ceremonies

Graduation is the highlight of the academic year. It is a chance for students to celebrate their achievements in the presence of their family, friends and the academic staff who have supported them. 

Our summer Graduation ceremonies take place in July, in Cardiff, Newport and Pontypridd, while our winter ceremonies take place in December in Pontypridd.
