Graduation 2012

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,  new graduates, parents, families and friends joined Ocean and Earth Science academics and staff for a reception at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, to celebrate their success and to recognise the achievements of prize winners.

The University of Southampton has an excellent reputation in the field of Ocean and Earth Science. Students at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton experience a relaxed, friendly and informal atmosphere, and enjoy a stimulating environment in which to learn essential scientific skills and prepare themselves for employment.

Professor Tim Minshull, Head of Ocean and Earth Science 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. Congratulations to all those graduating today!"

Our 2012 Ocean and Earth Science 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.
