Dear Class of 2020,
I wanted to pass on my personal congratulations to you all on graduating, especially as, sadly, I am not able to do so in person this year.
I know you must be disappointed that you are not able to mark the end of your degree and time here at Middlesex in the way that you would have liked. Having joined Middlesex earlier this year, I certainly was looking forward to enjoying my first graduation here, with the opportunity to celebrate with you and your families during one of the real high points in the academic year.
The whole Team MDX community are so proud of you not only for completing your degree but also for demonstrating such resilience, determination and kindness to each other in the face of what have been extremely unusual and unpredictable times.
While you cannot mark your graduation this summer formally, I hope you are able to celebrate your incredible achievements in some way – whether virtually or with friends and family. Take this time to take stock of this important personal milestone in your life and reflect on the challenges you have had to overcome in order to get there. Be proud of yourself; you did it!
As an official MDX graduate, you automatically become a member of our highly successful and global alumni community. As an alumnus, you have access to a wide range of benefits. Whether you are interested in accessing our employability support service, meeting other graduates in your academic or professional field, or just staying in touch with us, we will always ensure you are part of the #TeamMDX family.
Finally, I look forward to celebrating with you officially at a future rearranged graduation ceremony.
Nic Beech, Vice-Chancellor of Middlesex University
