Many congratulations on graduating from the University of Westminster. We are all so proud of your achievements.
To have completed your degree and be able to call yourself a Westminster graduate is an incredible accomplishment in itself. But you have done so much more than gain a qualification.
That is because this last year has been full of new and demanding challenges, which each of you has managed to embrace to find your way through. These additional challenges make your achievements even more remarkable. You have shown extraordinary resilience, learned new skills, shown compassion for each other and our university community. We are so grateful for and proud of how you have been and all you have done. You are now equipped with the skills and determination to make a real difference in the world which needs you so much.
Keep in touch
As a graduate of Westminster you now become part of our strong, dynamic and global University of Westminster Alumni Network.
There are many benefits of being an alumnus of Westminster, especially as you embark on your career. Globally, we continue to face challenges, and starting your career during these uncertain times may seem daunting, but our Careers and Employability Service and Alumni Teams are here to support you each step of the way.
Make the most of the careers support available to you over the next three years and keep an eye on your inbox for events and opportunities to support your professional development. I also encourage you to sign up to Westminster Connect, so you can network with fellow Westminster alumni and keep in touch with the University.
It is disappointing that we are unable to celebrate your graduation with a formal ceremony this year. But be assured, we fully intend to host graduation ceremonies as soon as it is safe to do so – hopefully in summer 2022. We will be in touch with more information closer to the time. I do look forward to seeing all there.
Until then, I wish you every success. The world needs progressive, responsible and compassionate Westminster graduates like you. And I am certain you will continue to make us proud.
All best wishes,
Dr Peter Bonfield OBE FREng FIET FICE
Vice-Chancellor and President
