Over 1,300 students graduate at London Metropolitan University's Winter Ceremonies

Date: 3 December 2014

London Met graduates, together with their family and friends, gathered once again at the iconic Barbican Centre this week for the 2014 Winter Graduation ceremonies.   

Over 3,000 guests attended the ceremonies on the 1 and 2 December to celebrate the achievements of the 1,300 new London Met graduates.

Graduands from the London Guildhall Faculty of Business and Law officially graduated on Monday 1 December, while those from the Faculty of Life Sciences and Computing, The Cass, and the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, celebrated the following day.  

London Met’s Vice Chancellor, Professor John Raftery, attended the ceremonies. He said: “The graduates will always be part of the London Met family, and London Met will always be here to support our alumni as well as our students.

“You should be really proud of your achievements here today.”

The ceremony was also attended by the Lord Mayor of The City of London, Alderman Alan Yarrow.  Alderman Yarrow has served London Met as Lord Mayor since 7 November, and the Winter Graduation represents his first ceremonial role with the University.

Over 55,000 graduates have passed through London Met into the global jobs market since the University was created by the merger of the University of North London and Guildhall University in 2002.

We wish our graduates the very best wishes and all the success awaiting them in their future careers!
