Congratulations Class of 2022!


Our 2022 summer graduation took place on 21 July, celebrating the fantastic achievements of our MB ChB, Master's and PhD students.

The day kicked off with a special breakfast event hosted by our Dean, Professor Sudhesh Kumar, for our MB ChB students graduating with Honours. Following the morning's degree ceremony in the Butterworth Hall, all of our new graduates were invited to join us for a celebration lunch, where special prizes were awarded for graduates who had excelled during their time at Warwick.
