In 2020 we made the difficult decision to postpone our traditional Graduation Ceremonies in light of the developing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Given the ongoing uncertainty, our Combined Academic Board today made the difficult, but necessary, decision that there will be no Graduation Ceremonies during the 2021 calendar year.
Gaining a degree in normal circumstances in a huge achievement; what you have managed in the wake of a global pandemic is nothing short of remarkable. We believe that all graduating students have earned the right to have their achievements recognised at a formal graduation ceremony and we are committed to ensuring that this happens when it is safe to do so.
It is our hope that we will be able to resume ceremonies in 2022 and we will provide more detail on our plans when we have a clearer understanding of what, if any, restrictions might be in place then.
In the meantime, we will mark your collective academic achievements over the summer months with a series of online celebrations.
