Summer of Graduation 

LJMU’s summer of graduation has already seen 4,000 students, from the Class of 2020 cohort, graduate back in April this year, and the further two weeks of ceremonies this July means a grand total of over 14,000 students have now graduated from LJMU, in 2022. 

Following a two-year postponement of ceremonies, due to the pandemic, all LJMU students, who are eligible to graduate, have now done so, with 52 ceremonies taking place at the cathedral over the past three months. 

Professor Mark Power, Vice-Chancellor of LJMU said:  

“Congratulations to all our students who have graduated over the past two weeks. 

“The ceremonies have been a true celebration of everything our students, and now graduates, have achieved during their time at LJMU, and we couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of them.” 

During the ceremony, Professor Mark Power encouraged those attending to be bold, be confident and to pursue their dreams, whilst also acknowledging the day as one of life’s big moments for any graduate, in the presence of friends and family. 

Mark also gave credit to all LJMU academic and professional services staff, adding:  

“I want to thank all the academic and support staff in playing such a huge role in helping our students complete their studies, as well as the graduation team and staff volunteers for putting on such a memorable three weeks’ worth of graduations and making sure every student finally got the graduation they deserve.”
