Virtual celebrations for the class of 2021

Virtual celebrations are being held at The University of Manchester to recognise the success of the class of 2021.

This summer, The University of Manchester will be holding virtual celebrations for its graduating students, to celebrate the successful completion of their studies.

These will be hosted locally for the majority of programmes in the week beginning Monday, 2 August 2021, and a digital programme will also be available. The celebrations are in no way in place of in-person graduation but are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the accomplishments of students throughout their studies, acknowledging the resilience and strength they have shown in these unprecedented times.

We’re pleased to update you our University is now planning graduation ceremonies in Manchester next year. Ceremonies will take place in either spring 2022 or summer 2022, taking into consideration the latest UK government advice at the time. The ceremonies that were postponed are being informed by our Division of Development and Alumni Relations.

The virtual celebration for the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures will take place at 3pm, Tuesday 3 August; and will be publicly available, on the SALC YouTube channel.

The celebrations can be viewed after this date, so any students unable to attend will be able to enjoy them with their friends and families at another time.

At the celebrations, students will have the chance to enjoy messages from lecturers, staff, students and alumni from across the University. Those featured will include SALC graduands from the class of 2021. There will also be an opportunity to catch up with staff and other graduating students, either prior to or after the celebration film; at departmental virtual live events.

These live events offer the chance to find out what people are up to, their plans for the future and of course to say congratulations and farewell!

Invites to the SALC celebration will be circulated on the 6th of July and links to the virtual live events will be circulated nearer the time.
