University Of Aberdeen Graduation
Congratulations on your Graduation!
Today is a special day. For our graduands it is a celebration of the culmination of one or more years of study. We hope it will be an occasion that you will remember fondly for the rest of your lives.
It is also an important day for the parents, partners, family and friends of the graduands. The achievement of a degree is one that is seldom managed without the support of those nearest to us. Today is a celebration which you are very much part of too.
We are also united today by a shared sense of pride in achievement. The University is proud of its graduands and we hope you are equally proud to be joining a community of alumni that is over five hundred years old. We hope you will take confidence from that long history which shows Aberdeen graduates have gone on to great success in life. We also hope you will remember your time here as being some of the happiest years of your life.
On behalf of everyone at the University, I hope you enjoy today and I wish you every success for the future.
Professor Ian Diamond (FBA FRSE AcSS)
