It's always been our intention to be able to celebrate the great achievements of our students in person. We know how important this is to you and your loved ones, as it means a great deal to us too. Holding virtual celebration events was a way to mark the academic achievements of our recent graduates during the pandemic, but now we are able to celebrate in person.
We're excited to be able to share the dates of in person celebration events for those students who have already graduated ‘in absentia’, and to confirm the dates of upcoming formal graduations which we are hoping to resume as normal, subject to any restrictions nearer the time.
Graduation celebration events
Please note: these events are for students who have already graduated ‘in absentia’.
These events are for students whose graduation was held online between April 2020 and April 2021. They are not for students who completed their course in 2021 who will graduate later this year as planned.
- Monday 6 September: Faculty of Business and Law
- Tuesday 7 September: Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
- Wednesday 8 September: Faculty of Engineering and Environment and Computing and Postgraduate Researchers
- Thursday 9 September: Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Coventry University London, CU Coventry and CU London
- Wednesday 29 September: CU Scarborough
These events are being arranged by CUSU and are a way for recently graduated students to come back to campus, to reconnect with friends, peers and academics, to say thank you and farewell. We’re looking forward to seeing and celebrating with you, and will share a formal invite with you in the coming weeks.
We hope to host the following graduation events for students who are due to graduate in the Autumn 2021 period:
- Friday 29 October: Coventry University London and CU London
- Monday 15 – Wednesday 24 November: Coventry University and CU Coventry
- Thursday 7 October: CU Scarborough
Please look out for more information from the graduation team to your university email account in due course, which will include a link to register.
We’re pleased to be able to share this news and mark these special occasions. We're currently working through plans and will be in touch to share the details of the celebration events and what they will entail.
