Biological Sciences graduating students receive their degrees

Published: 26 July 2011

210 Biological Sciences graduates received their degrees from the University of Southampton on 26th July 2011.

Graduation is the highlight of the academic year and a tribute to the hard work of our students during their time at Southampton. It is also a time for students to express their thanks to their families and to the staff who have supported them through their endeavours.

After receiving their hard-won degrees, the new graduates, parents, families and friends joined Biological Sciences academics and staff to celebrate their success and to recognise the achievements of prize winners.

In Biological Sciences, the teaching of our degrees is driven by our cutting-edge research. Our BSc programmes in Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Pharmacology and Zoology cover the spectrum of the biological sciences, and are taught by academics who are are involved in groundbreaking work in a range of areas from human fetal development to environmental change.

Professor Guy Poppy, Head of Biological Sciences says: "It's great to celebrate the achievements of our students. Today is a time to reflect on the academic and personal achievements made during their time at Southampton, and to look forward to their futures. Many of the Grand Challenges facing society today will need the input of biologists to generate solutions, and I trust that our graduates will be able to rise to this important endeavour. Congratulations to all those graduating today!"

Our 2011 Biological Sciences graduates join a Southampton alumni community that is 160,000 strong and spans the globe. We encourage all of our alumni to stay connected and to continue their involvement with the University.

Many of the Grand Challenges facing society today will need the input of biologists to generate solutions, and I trust that our graduates will be able to rise to this important endeavour. Congratulations to all those graduating today!
