Congratulations class of 2020 and 2021

Graduation is a time to reflect back on the last three years and take stock of all your accomplishments. It's a time when one significant chapter in your life closes and a new one begins.

No university journey is without its fair share of ups and downs, but during the pandemic, our 2020 and 2021 graduates became experts in making the best of a difficult situation.

Despite the substantial and ongoing challenges, you shone brightly, showed courage in adversity andĀ did yourselves proud. Here are some of the memorable graduation moments captured in pictures.

Thank you to our talented photographer, and BA (Hons) Digital Photography alumnus OpeĀ Odueyungbo for capturing this special day.

You clapped, whistled and cheered on your classmates as you waited patiently for your time on stage.

Your big moment. Despite the nerves, you took the stage with poise, grace and in some cases, with a hilarious amount of character.
