Graduation 2017/1917: Final Graduations

This afternoon marks the final day of graduations for the class of 2017. Today’s ceremony will be taking place at our Dumfries Campus, where students from the School of Interdisciplinary Studies will be receiving their degrees. Congratulations to all of the graduates!

We’ve been looking back in time and sharing the stories of graduates from 100 years ago, who graduated during a time dominated by the First World War. We told the stories of students such as Thomas Walter Manson and William Harold Palmer, who fought in the war and went on to forge successful careers in academia and medicine. We’ve also looked at other accomplished figures, such as the leading speech therapist Anne McAllister and the  engineer Ganesh Dass Bazaz.

Good luck to our graduates!
