In light of coronavirus and current Government advice, the University has taken the difficult decision to postpone the graduation ceremonies due to take place in July.
Most importantly, students due to receive their awards in the summer will still be awarded their qualifications, however we will be unable to celebrate with you, your families and friends in the way we would want at this time.
For undergraduate students, there may be a short delay of up to two weeks in Examining Boards sitting due to the extensions being applied to the assessment process this year, but students will still be awarded their degrees. This ensures that graduating students are able to either take up a role in the job market or pursue the next stage of their academic careers.
We know how important it is to celebrate with friends and family after years of hard work and graduation ceremonies have always been a highlight of our year at the University. We are looking at new dates for graduation ceremonies so that we can welcome back all our graduates and provide the celebration of their achievements they deserve. We are also looking at alternative ways to recognise students’ achievements over the summer for those who cannot do so in person. We will provide more information as soon as we can.
