School celebrates November Graduates

On Friday 20th November 2015, the School of Politics and International Relations celebrated the academic success of its Bi-diplome and Postgraduate students in their graduation ceremony at the Canterbury Cathedral.

Families, friends and staff took their seats in the Cathedral to watch as Politics and International Relations students were conferred their degrees by the University’s Vice Chancellor.


The School held a prize giving reception before the ceremony for students and their families, to celebrate the culmination of many years of hard work. Prizes were awarded to the following students:

The John Burton Prize for best overall performance in an MA programme

Johanna Hans, MA International Relations with International Law

The Global Society Prize for best dissertation in an MA programme

Giulia Ferro, MA International Conflict Analysis


The School of Politics and International Relations prize for Best overall performance in the Bi-diplome programme

Deborah Buisson, BA Politics and International Relations (Bi-diplome)

The School would like to congratulate all its students on their fantastic work during their time here and wish them every success for the future.

We would encourage them to keep in contact with Kent through the Alumni Network.
