The ceremonies, taking place this year on the seafront at the Brighton Centre, will see graduates ranging in age from 19 to 72 crossing the stage to collect their awards in a wide range of subjects and levels from Foundation Degrees to PhDs.
Speaking ahead of the ceremonies, Vice-Chancellor Professor Debra Humphris said: “Our ceremonies are the high point of the academic year, bringing together the whole university community to celebrate the fantastic achievements of our graduates. They are the leaders and professionals of the future and we look forward to seeing what they achieve.”
Two special awards will also be made:
