Graduation is a significant milestone in every student’s career – it’s an opportunity for the University to formally recognise your hard work and congratulate you on your success.

It’s also a special time for family and friends, who will watch from near and far to celebrate your achievements. Most importantly, it’s a special time for you – an unforgettable moment and the beginning of your future.

Celebrate your graduation online this summer

We're happy to announce that virtual graduation celebrations will be hosted for the majority of programmes in the week beginning Monday, 2 August 2021, with a digital PDF programme available from the same week.

A small number of programmes will hold their virtual celebrations earlier than this. Please look out for invites and further details from your School over the coming weeks.
