2021 Graduation Ceremonies

Looking across the lake on the western side of campus towards the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine.Unfortunately, due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the rise in infection rates and the latest national lockdown restrictions, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the April 2021 graduation ceremonies and are aiming to reschedule them for July 2021.

While we appreciate this will be disappointing and makes the wait for your special cap and gown moment a little bit longer, we have made this decision so that we can ensure you can mark your achievements safely and get the celebration that you rightfully deserve.

Subject to Government guidance, we are currently working towards holding in-person ceremonies over a two-week period from week commencing 12 July. Although the ceremonies may be a little different, we plan on giving you a truly unforgettable experience to make up for the wait.

We will be confirming this by letter to everyone due to graduate at the April 2021 ceremonies, along with a special little something from us which you can wear with pride on the big day. Do keep an eye on your post and make sure your contact details are up to date with us by emailing

Graduation is always the highlight of our University calendar and we can’t wait to welcome you back on campus when we are able to do so safely to help you celebrate your hard work.
