Graduations: May 2024

Date 17.05.2024

Last week’s ceremonies welcomed more than 8,000 graduates and guests in total over three days of celebrations and memory making.

This year’s ceremonies were held at the CINCH Stadium/Franklins Gardens, home of the Northampton Saints.

We held 9 ceremonies across the three days and the week in figures includes:

The graduation ceremonies also included a bumper crop of 42 student prizes, details of which are online.

This year’s digital programme – which included details of graduate success stories, sustainability and the history of University of Northampton’s – can be viewed on the University’s website.

Katie Chesser, Assessment, Ceremonies and Examinations Manager, says: “Our graduations offer a special opportunity to celebrate the hard work of our students before sending them on their way into their post-UON lives.

“A huge thank you to everyone who supported the delivery of our nine graduation ceremonies. It was, as always, the most enormous team effort with support from colleagues across the University. Whether covering phone calls, labelling seats, being part of the procession, looking after dignitaries, or greeting and seating our graduates and guests, it couldn’t happen without you all.”

Julie Martin, Academic Registrar, adds: “It was wonderful to be on the stage to celebrate our graduates’ achievements, and with their friends and families. Feedback from our guests and staff tells us everyone had a wonderful time.

“I’d like to add my own heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported the Spring ceremonies, and made it such a celebratory occasion.”
