Plenty to celebrate

Worcester Editorial 25th Nov, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

MORE than 4,000 Worcester students donned their robes and mortar boards as they took part in the city’s largest ever graduation week.

The University of Worcester celebrated the achievements of the graduates during eight ceremonies last week (November 17 to 21) as families from across the world descended on the streets of the Faithful City.

Ceremonies took place at Worcester Cathedral and all graduates were congratulated by Professor David Green, university vice chancellor, before they returned to the University of Worcester Arena for a drinks reception.

HRH The Duke of Gloucester KG GCVO, the university’s chancellor, was also in attendance at Friday afternoon’s ceremony.

Professor Green said: “The beauty and grandeur of Worcester Cathedral always provides a magnificent, most fitting setting in which to congratulate our graduated and to thank the parents, family, friends and supporters who have contributed so much to their success.

“The graduated of 2014 join an illustrious community of over 100,000 Worcester graduated who have made and are making an immense contribution to British society.

“We look forward to hearing about the continuing success of this year’s graduates in the year ahead, and we wish them every happiness.”

The Henwick Road site will host its next open day on Sunday (November 30).
