Date: 1 August 2016

Thousands of London Met graduates and their families celebrated at London’s iconic Barbican Centre last week during the University’s annual graduation ceremonies.

Graduates from the Schools of Computing and Digital Media, Business and Law, Social Sciences and Professions and The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design all graced the stage to receive their degrees, marking the successful conclusion of their studies.

Professor John Raftery, Vice Chancellor of London Met, said: “Completing a university degree is no mean feat, and our graduates should be immensely proud of what they have accomplished during their time with us.

“With London Met recently receiving our highest ever graduate employment score, I am confident that our graduates will go on to lead rewarding careers and contribute greatly to society.”

London Met recently became the biggest two-year riser in the country for graduate employment, with 93% of all graduates in work or further study six months after graduating.

Over the last two years, London Met has trained over 700 lawyers, more than 400 social workers and health professionals, nearly 600 architects and over 850 teachers and education professionals, highlighting the University’s vital contribution to society.
