Although we can't celebrate in person, the Winter Class of 2020 can celebrate online.
On Wednesday 16 December we are holding a day of celebrations for everyone graduating this winter. Graduates are invited to attend a live, virtual event with their faculty which will include speeches from the Vice-Chancellor, Students’ Union Sabbatical Officers and the faculty Dean.
2020 Winter Graduation Ceremonies - Postponed
We regret that due to the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and following the governments advice on large gatherings, the University has had to take the difficult decision to postpone the winter graduation ceremonies. Further details can be found on the 'events and coronavirus' section of our website.
Due to the postponement of our graduation ceremonies, all degree and post-graduate awards will be conferred on 24th November 2020.
You will receive an email to confirm your award by 26th November 2020 with information about the online celebrations that will be taking place during December.
