Record graduation numbers for COVID cohort

Wednesday 21 December 2022 4:55pm

Congratulations to all former Biochemistry students graduating this month! Tino pai rawa atu!

The Department is particularly thrilled to see a record number of PhD completions this year, despite the challenges that this cohort has faced with the COVID pandemic. Sixteen former PhD students graduated this year, 10 of them in December.

Formal University graduation ceremonies at the Town Hall were back on track after years of disruptions, and in addition, the Department was able to put on its customary event for graduands and their families to celebrate their achievements.

Head of Department Professor Sally McCormick spoke to those gathered, and she and Associate Professor Liz Ledgerwood presented graduands with flowers and gifts from the Department. Many teaching and academic staff were also able to attend and celebrate.
