Celebrating the Class of 2022

On Wednesday 13 July, the Class of 2022 graduated in Canterbury Cathedral and celebrated with a reception in Westgate Hall. We were able to catch up with them informally, announce this years prize winners and raise a toast to their achievements.

Over the past few years, such events have been challenging for all of us, and we want to thank all our staff and students who have adjusted to these challenges.

Director of Studies in the School of Psychology, Dr Dinkar Sharma said when addressing the graduates assembled:

“As a partner, friend, relative, worker, and citizen, the knowledge and ethical frameworks you learned can help yourself and others. Please keep using them and above all the skills, to find, analyse, and question evidence, to inform and persuade others. What you achieved gives you every confidence you can do this.”

They have been instrumental in helping us organise some really great student experience events, as well as coming to student voice forums to pass your thoughts along.”
