Teesside University winter graduation celebrations



Teesside University’s Winter graduates


A special programme of graduation celebrations was held at Wynyard Hall for over one thousand Teesside University graduates.

Six ceremonies were held over three days  in The Grand Marquee and Gardens at Wynyard Hall Hotel.

In total, more than 1,200 graduates  marked the completion of their academic studies at the University, which earlier this year was ranked in the UK top 25 for teaching excellence in the Good University Guide 2016-17.

University staff and guests  acknowledged the academic success of students from across the University’s five academic schools of Health & Social Care, Social Sciences, Business & Law, Design, Culture & the Arts, Science & Engineering, and Computing, with a range Higher Education qualifications awarded from undergraduate awards through to research doctorates (PhDs).

The graduation programme  also included students who have completed Teesside University Higher Education awards at the University’s further education college partners in the North of England.

Teesside University Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor Paul Croney, said: ‘Graduation is the high point in our University’s academic year.”

“It is the formal celebration of the achievement, values and qualities of the academic endeavour of our students and an opportunity for them to share their success with friends and family.”
