Congratulations Class of 2020!


Our 2020 Virtual Graduation Ceremony took place on 29 June, celebrating the fantastic achievements of our MB ChB students.

Our MB ChB finalists recited the Declaration of Geneva and special prizes were awarded for graduates who had excelled during their time at Warwick. We have shared the recording of the event below. As well as coming together for a virtual celebration, some of our graduates have recorded a video of themselves reading the Declaration of Geneva on our Flipgrid page. (Click on the 'Watch as friends and family' link and use code warwickgrad21).
