We’re pleased to announce that dates have now been set for Autumn graduation ceremonies for both the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021.

We’re delighted to finally be celebrating the successes of our students in person. Details of graduation ceremonies are below.

To be eligible for the ceremonies, your award needs to have been confirmed between 1 November 2019 and 31 July 2021. Students awarded after 31 July 2021 will be invited to ceremonies in 2022. Students who attended the virtual graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2020 in July 2021 will not be eligible for the ceremonies (but will be invited to later reunion events).
