[00:15] times

[00:16] and i'm sure your friends and family are

[00:18] extremely proud of you

[00:21] it has been a year like no other and you

[00:24] will have no doubt made huge personal

[00:26] sacrifices to reach this

[00:29] in point normal year we would welcome

[00:31] you back to the campus

[00:33] to take part in formal graduation

[00:35] ceremonies

[00:36] and informal parties to celebrate your

[00:38] achievements

[00:40] unfortunately for now this is not

[00:43] possible

[00:44] and so we must pass on our

[00:45] congratulations and best wishes

[00:48] online i know many of you will have come

[00:52] from abroad to study at warwick

[00:54] sharing experiences inside and outside

[00:57] the classroom

[00:58] with students and staff from across the

[01:00] globe enriches the experience

[01:03] of all of us at warwick it broadens our

[01:06] understanding of the context and values

[01:09] of societies beyond our own

[01:11] and put simply makes our lives more

[01:14] interesting

[01:16] what we learn from each other of course

[01:18] can help us as we progress into the

[01:20] world of work

[01:21] wherever and whatever career path we

[01:24] choose we all know that the pandemic has

[01:27] made international travel and cultural

[01:29] exchange

[01:30] very difficult however when the pandemic

[01:33] eases and vaccines are widely available

[01:36] we will have ample opportunity to

[01:38] re-engage with each other

[01:42] as you graduate from warwick and when we

[01:45] are allowed
