Cheers! Graduation through the years

Cheers! Graduation through the years

Graduation is a special milestone in a Nottingham student's journey – the moment all your hard work and achievements are recognised as you celebrate with family, friends and loved ones. As our final year students prepare to step across the stage and join our alumni community this summer, we take a look back at Nottingham graduations across the years...
