The first Global Sustainable Development cohort graduated on 24th July. Many congratulations!


Here it is, the year is officially over and the first GSD cohort, who started at Warwick three years ago, has just graduated!

GSD students were awarded their degrees on Thursday 24th July. This warm and intense day started with the Graduation Ceremony in the Butterworth Hall, where Prof Cathia Jenainati, Head of the School for Cross-faculty Studies, under the eyes of many GSD academics, handed out the precious degree certificates to our new graduates. After the traditional cohort picture – where students threw their graduation caps in the air – graduates, along their family and friends, joined GSD staff in Bar Fusion for a final celebration.

The graduation ceremony commenced with an opening address from the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Stuart Croft. During the ceremony, five OSCA winners were presented, including two GSD students, who received a joint 2019 Outstanding Student Contribution Award. Hannah and Liam were awarded an OSCA for founding Warwick SEED, a new society encouraging students to embrace positive business impact and social impact careers.
