The University’s Summer Degree Ceremonies will take place from Monday 15 to Saturday 20 July 2013.
The Summer Ceremonies are a celebration of our students' successes and achievements and, with eleven ceremonies throughout the week, will see around 4,000 students graduating from the University. The ceremonies will take place in the Butterworth Hall in the Arts Centre.

This year, recipients include TV and stage stars Ruth Jones and Adrian Lester, RSC artistic director Greg Doran and the former Artistic Director at the Royal Court Theatre Dominic Cooke.
