October and November graduation ceremonies
Earlier this year we made a difficult decision to cancel our graduation ceremonies due to COVID-19 restrictions. Graduation is a very special time for staff and students alike, and this decision was not taken lightly. With restrictions still in place, we are sad to announce that our October 2020 and November 2020 graduation ceremonies will also not be able to take place.
Celebrating your academic achievements with your family and loved ones means a great deal to us. We are delighted to be able to invite you to attend a virtual graduation celebration. You should have received an email sent to your university account inviting you to attend your virtual celebration. If you wish to attend you must make sure that you have registered by 15 November.
During the virtual celebration there will be an opportunity for you to appear live on screen with your graduating classmates. You, your family and friends will be able to watch the ceremony live on the University’s website. More details including the timing of your ceremony will be published shortly after registration has closed. You will find this information on the University graduation page.
We have arranged for awards to be conferred ‘in absentia’ and your certificate will be posted to you. This means that you will be able to confirm with employers, or other universities (if you intend to continue your studies) that you have successfully completed your studies with us and have been awarded your qualification. Certificates will be posted throughout November. Please allow up to three weeks for delivery to a UK address and six weeks for delivery to addresses outside the UK.
We will continue to update you with further information, but if you have any questions in the meantime please email: email@example.com.
It’s really important to us that we recognise the achievements of all our graduates. If you were due to attend a physical ceremony in April or July of this year we will be in touch with you very soon. We will contact through your university email or you can update your contact details with our Alumni team.
