The day started dull and overcast but we knew that the sun would eventually win through. Students were excited as they put on their gowns to be ready to receive their University degrees. The ceremony is always an uplifting occasion and the speech from the Vice Chancellor set the optimistic tone for the graduates as they left the great hall. The sun was there waiting and the good times began.

The Distance Masters students in General Dental Practice graduated for the first time and there was also several successful PhD graduates from Dentistry who were very happy about life as the picture gallery shows.
