Hundreds of students will don their gowns and celebrate their successes at the University of Stirling’s second Winter Graduation ceremony today.
More than 800 graduands will step onto the stage at the Stirling campus, following in the footsteps of 125 graduates at the University’s Highland graduation event earlier this month.
Degrees will be conferred to graduands from the Schools of Applied Social Science, Arts and Humanities, Education, and Nursing, Midwifery & Health at a 10am ceremony. Then, from 2.30pm, it is the turn of students from Management, Natural Sciences and Sport. Both events will be followed by receptions in the University’s Pathfoot Building.
Honorary degrees will be awarded to tennis coach and local hero Judy Murray, to Dame Elish Angiolini, Scotland’s first female Lord Advocate, and to Dr Taeko Seki, head of the University’s Japanese Alumni Association.
Overseeing the ceremonies will be University Chancellor Dr James Naughtie and Principal and Vice-Chancellor Professor Gerry McCormac.
