Furness Graduation 2018

Personal Invitation from the Principal

I have great pleasure in inviting you to attend the Furness College graduation celebrations on Wednesday 18 July 2018. The College celebrations have always been one of the best occasions of the University year and we hope very much that you, your parents, family, friends and partners will be able to attend. Graduation Day is a very special occasion and the College events enable you both to celebrate with your family and friends and to meet up with fellow Furnessians. Book your tickets through the online store for the afternoon tea; this is an extremely popular event. Tickets sell out fast and are available on a first come first served basis. Tickets can NOT be bought on the day. I do hope that you will be able to join me and the other College officers in celebrating this great day.
