    Over 93% of finalists from Murray Edwards College have achieved a 1st or 2:1 this year.

    The students graduated this Saturday at a ceremony in Senate House and celebrated at a garden party with their family and friends in the afternoon.

    Senior Tutor of Murray Edwards College, Dr Juliet Foster said: "It is a real pleasure to congratulate our graduands on a set of excellent exam results. We have seen some real achievements and successes, both individual and collective, across all subjects, and can be extremely proud of these." 

    "We wish all of our students the very best as they move on to the next stage of their lives, building on what they have accomplished here at Murray Edwards."
