Congratulations to the BA(IS) graduates of 2017!

On 12 December, we celebrated the graduation of many of our fabulous BA (International Studies) students (well, now former students). The occasion was incredibly heartwarming and a lovely prelude to the formal graduation event that followed the next day at the Docklands Stadium (see the adjacent blogpost for that). 

On this occasion, we also handed out several awards to students who managed great achievements and who gave outstanding service to the community around the BA (IS) degree. Those receiving awards this year are:

Below are a few photos from the event. On the one hand I (Julian) apologise for not getting good and typical photos of people receiving awards (and a couple were too blurry - so sorry!), however, on the other hand, I think the those photos reflect the happiness and camaraderie in the room, and the warmth of the occasion. (Click each photo to see a larger version of it. It might look pixelly at first, but it clears up after a few moments).
