Graduation

Spring Graduation Suspended

In light of the ongoing uncertainty created by the COVID-19 outbreak and its spread in the UK, we have taken the decision to suspend all graduation ceremonies scheduled to be held in March and April 2020.

This decision has not been taken lightly – we know how important graduations are to our graduands and their families – but we must prioritise the health and safety of our students, staff and the communities where we are located. Current advice around mass gatherings is subject to continual review by the government and Public Health England, and we think it sensible to act now in order to give graduands and their guests as much notice as possible.

So as not to disadvantage students due to graduate, the awards will be conferred administratively and certificates posted to home addresses. It is therefore important that students due to graduate this spring check that their address details are up-to-date on SOLAR. Dates will be organised and circulated in due course for formal celebrations so that those affected do not miss out on the graduation experience.Ede & Ravenscroft provide the gowning and photography for our graduation ceremonies. You can cancel your gown and photography online by logging back into your account, or you can contact them through their call centre on 01223 861 854 to request a refund. Please use this link to cancel online: www.gownhire.co.uk.
