Cardiff Met’s latest graduation ceremony was held on the 24th February 2016, at Cardiff City Hall. A total of 260 undergraduate and postgraduate students representing 49 countries worldwide received their awards on stage. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Professor Mohamed Loutfi, Pro-Vice Chancellor (International) presented the graduates with their awards with authorisation read by Daniel Tiplady on behalf of the President & Vice-Chancellor. This was the first UK graduation ceremony presided over by Professor Loutfi, who stepped in for the President and Vice Chancellor, Professor Antony Chapman who was at Buckingham Palace receiving a Queens Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education for Cardiff Met’s work with 3D digital scanning technologies for reconstructive surgery. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
