Change the world


The University had hoped that by this coming December it would revert to hosting its normal summer graduation ceremonies, but unfortunately the situation with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic has not yet improved to a level where it would be feasible and safe to do so. 

In view of reducing the risks of spreading the virus, the University will once again be hosting virtual graduation ceremonies on 17 and 18 December 2020 for the students who have completed their qualifications during the 2020 academic year. 

The virtual graduation will be shared online and graduands, together with their families and loved ones, will be able to join via a link to be provided.  

Full details of these ceremonies will follow.

Safety first

The decision to host the Summer Graduation virtually comes as the continued reality of the COVID-19 pandemic increases the risk of infections should the University host a physical gathering.

April 2020 Graduates

Those students who received their qualifications in absentia during the virtual autumn graduation in April 2020 with the expectation of also celebrating at a physical ceremony, will hopefully be given the opportunity to do so in March 2021 depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds.

We believe this is the right decision as the wellbeing of our graduands and that of their loved ones who would have joined them, is of paramount importance.
