“Top effort everyone – you are all legends and should be immensely proud to be graduating after all your hard work. We are gutted you won’t be able to graduate in the usual fashion – although, donning your gowns and silly hats, and celebrating with friends and family will feel even more special when it does happen. We have no doubt you will all go and make a significant difference to your local communities, using the scientific knowledge and practical skills you have been honing during your time at SGUL. Be kind, think big and have fun”.

Matt Owen, Physiotherapy Class of 2012 and Clara Vella, MBBS Class of 2013

“Many congratulations to you all for achieving this pinnacle. I appreciate it must be difficult not being able to celebrate directly with friends via the Summer Ball and Graduation Ceremony but this will make you better doctors in these uncertain times. You will develop better in terms of empathy, compassion and insight to the various psycho-socioeconomic issues in patients as well as dealing with the medical issues so you will mature fast in these uncertain times to be our future leaders and indeed, treat me for my ailments when needed!”

Dushyant Mital, MBBS Class of 1993
