Graduating UWL students ready for success in their careers

Hundreds of UWL graduates have been told that they are ‘career ready’ as they celebrated successfully completing their courses. 

At the ceremony Professor Peter John, Vice Chancellor of UWL, told students that their success was ‘the fruit of hard work over many years that will help them succeed in their chosen careers and change their lives forever’. 

Mehnaz Choudhry, who graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Social Work, said: 'I’ve loved studying at UWL. The lecturers have been so supportive, the facilities are amazing and I’ve made friends for life. And it’s great to know I’ll be graduating from somewhere that has been shortlisted for University of the Year.'

UWL students celebrate their graduation

With around a third of UWL students coming from West London, the University plays a key role in meeting the workforce needs of businesses in the area, with 98% in work of further study within six months of collecting their degrees, according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). 

Six leading community and industry figures are being awarded Honorary Degrees over the two days of ceremonies, including the musician Don Letts and Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, Chief Nurse at Health Education England.
