Graduations on the Beach

Swansea University students celebrated their graduations in style last month at our beautiful Bay Campus.

The sun shone down on our graduates throughout the week of ceremonies, award giving and celebrations. After being awarded with their degree certificates in a spectacular ceremony in the stunning Sir Stanley Clarke Auditorium, graduates from across the University’s seven colleges got to relax and make the most of the beautiful beachside campus.

Drinks receptions were held throughout the week inside the purpose-built celebration marquee which was decorated with drapes, an array of gorgeous floral displays and chandelier lighting. An outside terrace was created to the front of the marquee with picket fencing and occasional outdoor furniture.

Inside the marquee the canapés and strawberry tartlets went like hotcakes, and the prosecco flowed throughout the day.

For those who preferred their celebrations a little less formal, a food court was erected in Tenant Place serving cold glasses of Pimms, strawberries and cream, barbequed food; and ice cream and waffles were served from the University’s very own ice cream bike.
