Class of 2020 and Summer 2021 graduates

The University appreciates that our 2020 and Summer 2021 graduates have not had a graduation ceremony yet. We are fully committed to making sure that you will have the opportunity to celebrate in person, and we will share details of all the events planned once they have been fully confirmed.

The Winter 2021 graduations ceremonies are only for current students that are completing their studies and graduating this winter. The University is still working to reduced capacities for events so additional ceremonies have had to be arranged to accommodate this graduating cohort.  As such it was not possible to arrange the rescheduled 2020 or Summer 2021 ceremonies within this timeframe.

We look forward to confirming details with you in due course. Please make sure your email address is up to date by filling out our update your contact details form here.
