On a sunny September 5th we were delighted to celebrate the successes of our most recent graduates. Graduates of the BA double major (Psychological Studies +), BSc. Psychology, BA (International) Psychology, and BA Psychology were conferred with their awards during the three ceremonies on the day. Congratulations to the class of 2023! We celebrate your achievements and look forward with confidence to bright futures ahead.
