Congratulations Class of 2021


This week, we will be celebrating the students who have been awarded their postgraduate research degrees. We feel immense pride in each and every one of you, particularly given the challenges of the last year.

The pandemic has prevented us celebrating in our traditional way. Although our ceremonies will take place later in the year, we have come together across the University of South Wales to celebrate your many years of hard work. Congratulations!
