Graduation week is underway!
Around a thousand students watched by two thousand seven hundred well-wishers are due in Carlisle as the city hosts the summer graduation ceremony.
From policing to project management, accounting to zoology, the celebrations are infectious with businesses in the city offering discounts and special offers as part of a collaboration with Carlisle City Council and the Carlisle Partnership.
Four honorary fellows are to be presented with awards at Carlisle Cathedral and, for only the second time, the university will present a special award of ‘alumnus of the year’ which recognises the exceptional achievements of a graduate.
