Celebration marks Graduate School success
Postgraduate students at the University of Lincoln The University of Lincoln hosted an official launch event for its dedicated Graduate School to celebrate the on-going success of its thriving postgraduate community.

The event was held to recognise the work of The Graduate School, which promotes the development of postgraduate activity and champions the interests of postgraduate students throughout the University.

The celebration followed the completion of The Graduate School’s new facilities, which provide specialist support, training and events throughout the year for the University’s 1,400 postgraduates.

The Graduate School, which is located on the University’s main Brayford Pool Campus, was officially opened by Vice Chancellor Professor Mary Stuart before an invited audience of staff and students.

Speaking at the ceremony, Professor Mike Neary, Dean of Teaching and Learning and Director of The Graduate School, also paid tribute to the School’s accomplishments.

He said: “We are delighted to be celebrating the on-going success of The Graduate School here at the University of Lincoln. It is a fantastic facility that enables us to provide vital support for our staff and students throughout the year, and we have worked extremely hard to ensure that The Graduate School provides the best possible environment for our postgraduate community.

“This official celebration is an ideal opportunity to reflect on The Graduate School’s achievements to date, as we are extremely proud of the contribution that our postgraduate students make to the University. They undertake an extensive range of research, which is showcased every year at the University’s Postgraduate Student Conference, and we very much look forward to the School’s continued success.”
