‘We will never forget you’ –
Vice-Master tells Class of 2020
"The road to a Cambridge degree is always challenging and you are the generation that got there in the midst of a global pandemic"
Hundreds of students should be processing to the Senate House this week to graduate from the University of Cambridge.
The global coronavirus pandemic has meant the usual general admission events have been cancelled, and students have been encouraged to graduate in absentia with the promise of a belated celebration at a later date.
To mark what would have been the day the 2020 cohort of students from St John’s would have graduated, a special film has been released to mark their achievements.
In it, Professor Tim Whitmarsh, Vice-Master of St John’s, said: "The road to a Cambridge degree is tough and challenging at the best of times; but you are the generation that got there in the midst of a global pandemic. We will never forget that, and we will never forget you."
