Summer Degree and Award Congregations celebrate students’ success

The achievements of around 3,000 Swansea University students will be celebrated next week at Swansea University’s annual Summer Degree and Award Congregations.

The 21 Congregations will take place at the University’s Great Hall at the Bay Campus from Monday 18 July until Saturday 23 July, where undergraduate and postgraduate students will receive their awards.

This is the first time that Degree and Award Congregations are held at the Great Hall, which was officially opened by HRH The Prince of Wales earlier this month.

Joining in the celebrations will be the students’ families and friends, University officials, academic staff, representatives of the Students’ Union, civic officers and local dignitaries.


The degrees and awards will be received by graduands from:

  • The College of Arts and Humanities, and the Department of Adult Continuing Education (DACE) on Monday
  • The College of Human and Health Sciences, and the Medical School on Tuesday
  • The College of Science on Wednesday
  • The College of Engineering on Thursday
  • The School of Management on Friday
  • The College of Law and Criminology on Saturday

‌‌Professor Richard B Davies, Vice-Chancellor of Swansea University, said: “Our Degree and Award Congregations are the happiest occasion in the academic year. 

"I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to our students graduating this year and I wish them every success for the future.‌

“The Congregations also enable us to acknowledge the important role that our students’ friends and families play in supporting and encouraging them throughout their years of study – and not least in their final year of study which is the culmination of their efforts and hard work.

‌“We have a proud history of equipping students for exceptional personal and professional achievement since 1920. I hope this year’s graduates will be able to take a continuing pride in Swansea University, as we continue to build upon the phenomenal success of recent years.”
