Thousands of relatives and friends will be attending the Winter Award Ceremonies which begin on Thursday 11 February and many more will be watching from their homes throughout the UK and the world via a livestream.
Professor Debra Humphris, the university’s Vice-Chancellor, said: “Students have worked extremely hard for their awards and I wish each and every one success in their chosen careers.
“The university is proud to play its full part in developing the next generation of key professionals this country needs for its future success – and in fostering the creativity and skills which will generate the new ideas and enterprise required to face the global challenges of the 21st century.”
Graduates, many donned in gowns and mortarboards, will collect their awards from Professor Humphris and John Harley, chairman of the University of Brighton’s Board of Governors.
The university’s prestigious Alumnus Award 2016 will be presented to award-winning actor, presenter and campaigner, Adam Pearson in recognition of his campaigning achievements to eliminate prejudice against people with disability and disfigurement.
