Family, friends and staff gathered on a sunny afternoon on Saturday to celebrate the graduation success of the Class of 2015.

Close to 400 undergraduate students graduated in a ceremony which took place in the Warwick Arts Centre, where Professor James Robinson received an honorary degree, before attending an evening drinks reception.

Students who had studied straight Economics or a joint degree programme, such as EPAIS, PPE and Maths and Economics, celebrated with family, fellow students and staff at an evening reception, where a number of student and staff awards were presented.

Professor Abhinay Muthoo, Head of Department and Co-director of the Warwick Policy Lab, said:

The graduation ceremony and reception was a huge success, with graduates and their family and friends, enjoying themselves in the sunshine.

We had around 390 students along with their family and friends; a total of around 1200 people, which was fantastic to see as our graduates celebrated their degree accomplishments.

Awards were presented to students in special recognition of their work and staff were also recognised with excellence in teaching awards, presented by the Staff Student Liaison Committee (SSLC).
