LSST students and their families travelled to London from all over the world to attend and it was a wonderful celebration of their academic accomplishments and hard work. The graduation ceremony was followed by a drinks reception where the new graduates revived old friendships and celebrated with family, peers and LSST staff.

Over 75 LSST students from subject areas such as business, public health, hospitality and computing took to the stage to shake hands with Professor Lynn Dobbs, London Metropolitan University’s Vice-Chancellor, before receiving their degrees.
