We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting our Graduation Ceremonies* this July, for both 2020 and 2021 graduates.

Graduation is always the highlight of our University calendar and we can’t wait to celebrate with you, your friends and your families on campus.

When will the Graduation Ceremonies take place?

Ceremonies will take place every weekday between Monday 19 July and Friday 30 July 2021.*

You can find out the date and time of your ceremony on the full timetable here. You need to register by Tuesday 25 May 2021.


How and where will the ceremonies be held?

There will be up to three ceremonies per day – all taking place on campus in the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine and lasting between 40 and 45 minutes. We are planning for graduands (you) and two guests to be seated in the theatre for your ceremony. If you plan to bring guests to your ceremony you need to order your two free tickets here.

If the ‘exit from lockdown’ plan changes and social distancing is still required, we plan to proceed with our graduations, but only graduands will be accommodated in the theatre. Your guests will still be able to join you on campus and watch the ceremonies live on the big screens we will have around campus.
