Blackfriars students graduate

Tuesday 10th March 2015

On Saturday 7th March, two students of Blackfriars Hall received their degrees personally at a splendid ceremony at the Sheldonian Theatre, designed by Sir Christopher Wren 350 years ago.  The ceremony itself is much older in its form, with a good many Latin phrases delivered with varying degrees of aplomb by officials and graduands wearing formal academic dress.   A third student, who was unable to attend the ceremony, graduated in absentia. 

Pictured outside Blackfriars are Genevieve Cox, who received her DPhil in Theology, and Glen Woodroffe, who gained a distinction in the Master of Studies in International Human Rights Law, along with Richard Ounsworth OP. As the Hall's Dean of Degrees, he formally proposed the candidates for graduation and then presented them with their degree certificates at an enjoyable gathering back at the Hall.  Cynthia Orchard's degree of Master of Studies in International Human Rights Law was conferred upon her in her absence.
