Events

Graduation

Our graduation ceremonies celebrate the end of your years of hard work on your course. Find out when the ceremonies are, what to expect and what you need to do before graduating.

Summer Graduation Ceremonies

Graduation ceremonies are important events for you, the entire university community, and those who are close to you. They celebrate your achievements, and we would always prefer them to be physical events where we can gather to recognise your hard work.

However, in the current uncertain climate relating to the pandemic, we have little choice but, again, to have a virtual graduation event this summer. For our summer graduating cohort of 2021, we will be holding virtual graduation ceremonies on Friday 16 July at 11.00 BST, to recognise your accomplishments and the challenges you have overcome in the face of adversity.

Wherever you are in the world, you will be able to experience the virtual graduation ceremony with your peers, friends and family. You will take to the virtual stage in a short video or image which will be showcased during the celebration. You will receive more information about the ceremonies in due course.

While this may not be the graduation ceremony you would have hoped for, your safety and that of your families and the wider University community must be our priority. We will of course do our very best to make this a memorable occasion for you.
