The Department's annual Award Ceremony takes place in the spring each year. It is a wonderful event that marks the completion of one of the Department's undergraduate award bearing courses.
Of the nearly 500 students who received awards this year, approximately 185 (and nearly 300 guests) attended our 2016 Award Ceremony at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford on 6 April 2016. Awards presented were Undergraduate and Postgraduate Certificates, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas in 24 subject areas.
As usual, students travelled from around the world to attend the Sheldonian ceremony, coming from Canada, Chile, Croatia, Germany, Guatemala, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Maldives, Malaysia, Netherlands, Russia, Switzerland & the USA.
You can get an idea what the annual award ceremony is like by watching the short online videos listed below:
