Postponement of Summer 2020 Graduation Ceremonies
We have made the decision to postpone the Summer 2020 graduation ceremonies to protect your wellbeing and the wellbeing of your families and other guests. We believe that this is the right choice given the latest government advice on containing the spread of coronavirus and avoiding large gatherings.
The University will still dispatch degree certificates to all graduands and the postponement of graduation will not cause delays to the issuing of certificates. We will also offer all graduands the opportunity to attend a ceremony in the future, when the position is clearer and it is safe to do so. We will communicate more details around this in due course.
As you will appreciate this is an unusual and fast-moving situation and as such, we will issue further guidance and information as the situation develops. In the meantime, please keep up to date with the latest information from the University on UniHub.
A confirmation email will be sent to the email address that you provide in the online registration with details of your order. Please make sure this has details of a student ticket. If you do not receive an email you must contact us immediately.
There is no payment for graduates to attend their ceremony however you must register and book your own ticket, even if you do not intend to bring any guests with you. A fee is payable for guests at the time of registration so please have a debit/credit card ready.
Students can purchase up to a maximum of two guest tickets in the first instance provided this is done by the deadline of 4pm on 22nd June. When you register to attend graduation you must enter how many tickets you require, including your own, and not assume that tickets will be automatically allocated. Students can only book their two tickets up to the deadline date - after this we presume that you no longer need any tickets and these are released for other students to purchase.
If you can't register please contact us so we can see what the problem is. It may be that you are not due to graduate this year, you have an outstanding debt to the university which must be cleared before you can register or you are using the incorrect student number.
