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.

Degree Certificate

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.
