Teesside University winter graduation celebrations

23 November 2016 @TeessideUni


A special programme of graduation celebrations is to be held at Wynyard Hall for over one thousand Teesside University graduates.

Six ceremonies will be held over three days from Wednesday 23 to Friday 25 November in The Grand Marquee and Gardens at Wynyard Hall Hotel.

In total, more than 1,200 graduates will mark the completion of their academic studies at the University, which earlier this year was ranked in the UK top 25 for teaching excellence in the Good University Guide 2016-17.

University staff and guests will acknowledge the academic success of students from across the University’s five academic schools of Health & Social Care, Social Sciences, Business & Law, Design, Culture & the Arts, Science & Engineering, and Computing, with a range Higher Education qualifications awarded from undergraduate awards through to research doctorates (PhDs).

The graduation programme will also include students who have completed Teesside University Higher Education awards at the University's further education college partners in the North of England.
