Durham Cathedral was the magnificent setting on the afternoon of Thursday 26 June for the Congregation ceremony at which this year’s graduates from the Department of Physics received their degrees. After the ceremony many of the graduates and their guests made their way to a reception in the Department’s Bransden Room where the Head of Department, Professor Richard Abram, took the opportunity to congratulate everybody on what they had achieved and awarded a number of prizes to recognise performances of exceptional distinction.
