Graduation

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.

Winter graduations 2021

Our winter graduations will take place in person at Whitworth Hall, from Monday 13 December to Friday, 17 December 2021. These ceremonies are for students who complete their studies between 29 July and 1 December.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, there will be some changes and restrictions to what is normally provided at the ceremonies to ensure that our graduating students, guests and staff can celebrate safely in person.

We'll keep you updated if any changes to government COVID-19 guidelines mean that we need to review whether the in-person ceremonies can go ahead. You'll find further information on the graduation website which will be updated frequently with any changes and/or announcements.

Rescheduled ceremonies for 2020 and 2021 graduates

We're planning for all our rescheduled ceremonies to take place in person in spring/summer 2022 (exact dates for ceremonies are still to be determined). 

These will be for the classes of summer and winter 2020 and summer 2021. They'll run in addition to the usual ceremonies for our class of 2022, which are planned to take place in July 2022. We'll continue to update those due to attend as further details are confirmed.
