Spring Graduation 2023

Our Spring 2023 graduation ceremonies were held at the University of London's Senate House, with an impressive 1,294 postgraduate students graduating. Ten ceremonies took place over four days, from Monday 24 to Thursday 27 April.

Graduating students were addressed and congratulated by Professor David Latchman CBE, Vice-Chancellor; Baroness Joan Bakewell, President (who offered congratulations over video); Professor Joanna Bourke, College Orator; academic staff; alumni; and four new Fellows of the College: Annie Coombes, Judy Singer, Hetan Shah and Michael O'Neill.

The diversity of Birkbeck's student body was evident at the ceremonies, with graduates from all age groups, cultures and walks of life celebrating their successes. Here are some of the remarkable personal stories of graduates.
