BMBS Online Graduation

Welcome to the University of Exeter’s inaugural online graduation ceremony.

We are delighted to join with our graduating BMBS students and their loved ones to celebrate this important milestone.

During the ceremony we will hear from the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Steve Smith, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean of the Medical School, Professor Clive Ballard, and the Chancellor, Lord Myners of Truro, CBE, as they mark this special occasion.

Graduands are invited to join Professors Julie Thacker and Ian Fussell as they recite the Hippocratic Oath to declare their commitment to uphold exemplary professional standards throughout their career. The declarations can be captured for loved ones, colleagues and peers to see.

Please also watch messages of support from Medical School faculty, staff and members of the public who have engaged in teaching delivery.

In addition to the ceremony, the Alumni Annual Fund will kindly be supporting the production of a yearbook free of charge to celebrate your achievements. Please look out for an email with a link to upload your entry from the University’s alumni relations team.
