Autumn Graduation 2017

Autumn Graduation 2017

November 2017’s graduation ceremonies for Birkbeck students returned to the University of London’s Senate House in the heart of Bloomsbury. Six ceremonies took place from Tuesday 14 November to Thursday 16 November in the Beveridge Hall, the largest hall in the iconic art deco building.

Almost 900 graduating students were awarded their degrees over the course of the week by Professor David Latchman, Master of Birkbeck, as well as receiving warm congratulations from Baroness Joan Bakewell, President of the College.

As well as graduating students, four new Fellows were formally recognised for their contribution to Birkbeck - Tricia King, Professor John Annette, Geraldine Sundstrom and Derek Hicks - with the College Orator, Professor Joanna Bourke, speaking about their lives and involvement with Birkbeck and its community of students and staff.
