COVID-19 Update

Class of 2020 Update 28.01.21

Note: This is for students who have achieved an eligible award between 7th November 2019 and 4th November 2020.

In light of recent COVID-19 Government announcements, and the continuing uncertainty, we will not be able to go ahead with the postponed graduation ceremonies that we had hoped to hold in April 2021. Our foremost priority is the safety of our graduates and their guests, and we cannot successfully deliver a graduation experience under these circumstances.

At this time, we do not know if and when postponed ceremonies can be held, but we continue to plan for alternatives, reflecting on your feedback, and working closely with your Student Union and others in the sector to investigate the best options.

We will email all eligible graduates as soon as we know more, and no later than May, with an update.

We appreciate how disappointed you will be, as we are, and thank you for your continued patience in these difficult times, particularly when we are not in a position to predict when alternative arrangements may be made.

As always, please keep your email address up to date on your Student Record so that you do not miss our email updates, and we will continue to keep our Covid-19 Update and FAQs page updated when we have more information.

If you have any further queries which are not addressed on our FAQ page, please do not hesitate to contact us via
