LSTM’s class of 2013 will graduate this afternoon at Royal Liverpool Philharomic Hall. The graduating class of 61 MSc students, along with four of PhD students and a number of students awarded certificates and diplomas will receive their certificates from LSTM’s Director of Education, Dr Sue Assinder. The students were invited to get together before the ceremony at a special lunch provided for them and their families at LSTM. It was a chance to catch up with their classmates and celebrate each other’s success.
Following lunch there were several awards presented by Dr Assinder across the different Masters programmes. While two of the students receiving the awards were unable to attend they, along with the other recipients, were applauded by staff and fellow students alike.
Awards were presented to the following students:
Catrin Jones (MHS) and Alice Harvey (MHHPM) were jointly awarded the prize for the highest scoring students on a Humanitarian programme.
