This week has been a time to celebrate as nearly 3,000 students were on campus to receive their degrees at ceremonies held at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
For many of our online degree graduates it was their visit to Liverpool and a great chance to celebrate with their tutors, fellow students and friends from all around the world.
Celebrations with family and friends were captured in the alumni graduation photo booth in the Guild. Our graduates now join a network of more than 215,000 graduates located all over the world. To find out more about our global alumni network please visit our alumni webpages.
