Postponed ceremony information
We have taken the decision, as a University, to postpone the July graduation ceremonies.
We understand you may be disappointed about this decision. The decision to postpone the ceremonies has been taken due to the ongoing global COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and is based on us wanting to prioritise the health and safety of you and your guests, as well as wanting you all to experience, in person, a great graduation day. By taking the difficult decision to postpone the ceremonies, we hope to offer you this experience at another time in the future.
At the moment we are monitoring the situation with coronavirus and following government advice and guidance. We are planning behind the scenes what the ceremonies will look like at another time, this is obviously an unprecedented situation and we thank you for your patience as we put plans in place. As soon as we can, we will update you with the new arrangements.
It is important to stress that postponing graduation ceremonies does not impact on the University awarding you your degree, providing you meet the requirements of your course. It is not mandatory for you to attend graduation to complete your degree.
If you have further questions you might find your questions are answered here:
Why have the award ceremonies been postponed?
Will the ceremonies be re-arranged?
Do I have to attend my award ceremony to complete my degree?
How will I be contacted about rescheduled ceremonies?
I have booked travel and accommodation already, will I get refunded?
We suggest you contact your hotels/travel providers as soon as possible to explain the situation.
