Chemistry Conferring September 2023

School of Chemistry  Graduates Conferred

6th of September 2023

It was a beautiful day for the conferring of our Chemistry graduates on Wednesday 6th of September. The weather was matched only by the bright smiles and happy faces of the students and staff as they celebrated their achievements  Chemistry. We were lucky to have many of the graduates join us by the new lake to record this special day and Paddy Campbell's sculpture 'Wind and Water' appears to be in full agreement with the celebrations.
