Few events bring more smiles to faces than graduation day, and today was no exception as friends and family gathered to witness the JMU Journalism Class of 2018 receive their degrees.

Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral provided the setting and – despite the threat of rain – the sun was shining down on the graduates as they celebrated the end of a three-year university journey.

After the ceremony, the departing students and guests went to the LJMU Redmonds Building for a final look around at a drinks reception and prize-giving ceremony.

Journalism Programme Leader, Jackie Newton, said: “One of the great happy occasions of the academic year is when the students and their families come to Liverpool to celebrate their achievements at university on graduation day.

“We wish them all every success in the job market, and hope that they keep in touch in future to let us know about their progress.”
