Published on: 24 November 2016

Newcastle University London hosted its inaugural Congregation Ceremony for its first cohort of International Business Management masters students.

Presided over by Professor Tony Stevenson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Newcastle University, the ceremony followed traditional University style. The academic procession was led by the Bedel carrying the University mace, and accompanied by the Northumbrian pipes.

Professor Amanda Broderick, Chief Executive Officer of Newcastle University London awarded the degree certificates. She said: "As a close-knit learning community, Newcastle University London are particularly delighted to celebrate and recognize the achievements of our new graduates and collectively share their excitement for the future.

"We are hugely thankful to all the co-creators of our learning environment in our first year in London: our new graduates; academic and professional services colleagues; industry and school partners; and our passionate Advisory Board. 

“As the inaugural Class of 2016, our graduates will always have an extra special place in the history of the London Campus and an inspirational role as our London Ambassadors in the Newcastle University global alumni network.”
