LSTM’s class of 2014 graduated this afternoon at Liverpool’s Cathedral of Christ the King. The graduating class of 80 MSc students, along with a number of PhD students, recently concluded their studies at LSTM. While many were overseas, those that were able attended a lunch at LSTM with their friends and family before the formal ceremony. They were welcomed by LSTM’s Director, Professor Janet Hemingway, before catching up with classmates and tutors.
Following lunch there were several awards presented by Dr Sue Assinder, Director of Education, across the different Masters programmes. Students who were unable to receive their awards in person were applauded in their absence by staff and fellow students.
