JMU Journalism Class of 2017 graduation

The culmination of a three-year journey was marked at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral, as the JMU Journalism Class of 2017 celebrated graduation day.

The sun was shining brightly to fit the warmth of the emotions as friends and family took their places in the majestic cathedral, eager to see their loved ones complete their degrees in style.

After the ceremony, the departing students and entourages headed back to the LJMU Redmonds Building one last time for a drinks reception and prize-giving ceremony.

Course Programme Leader, Jackie Newton, said: “Today is always a special occasion, not only for the students and their families, but also for our staff as we watch everyone graduate. We wish them all the very best of luck in their future careers, and we look forward to seeing their progress.”
