St Chad’s to host first graduation

The very first students of Shrewsbury’s fledgling university will graduate at the town’s St Chad’s Church on Friday 28 September.

University Centre Shrewsbury’s provost, Prof Anna Sutton, says, “We’re excited that our inaugural graduation ceremony will take place this year, marking the achievements of our first students. They’ve made history, and we’re extremely proud of our pioneering cohort.

“The town has given them a wonderful welcome and place to study, and the students have represented us at civic events, joined local clubs and groups, spent time at local organisations on work placement, and supported local and national causes with fundraising activities.

“It’s an honour to have the opportunity to offer degrees in this fantastic county and see the students excel in their studies and interests during their time with us. We’ll be sad to see our first intake leave UCS, but we know that some are staying in the area to work and study after graduation – and we’re eager to see what they accomplish next.”
