Celebrating The Class of 2020
Congratulations on successfully completing your studies, we are very proud of you and all you have achieved. You will still be able to attend a physical graduation ceremony when it is safe to do so, but in the meantime we, along with the UUSU, want to mark your achievements on 23 July.
Interactive virtual showcase
To celebrate the Class of 2020 on Thursday 23 July we will be showcasing congratulatory video messages from some familiar faces and sharing our amazing student success stories. Find your name in our graduate listings and check out our Class of 2020 digital yearbook to view messages from your fellow UU graduates and staff.
There is no set time for the celebration on the day, you can just check out this website and the UU social channels at a time that suits you. We want to be able to celebrate with you too so would love for you to share your celebration photos on your social channels using #UUClassof2020.

Celebrating the Class of 2020
The last few months have seen extensive restrictions put in place due to COVID-19, and as such the University has had to follow the strict government advice and make the extremely difficult decision to postpone summer graduation ceremonies this June and July.
We will continue to follow the government advice closely and advise you on a new date for graduations as soon as possible.
In the meantime we are working with the UUSU and our student body to plan an exciting day of virtual celebrations in the near future to celebrate our Class of 2020.
All academic qualifications are awarded by the University Senate which is continuing to meet and to make all necessary decisions.
Although the graduation ceremonies have been postponed, all students who have successfully completed their course will receive their certificate of their degree award and transcript by post in mid to late August.
