Class of 2021, we very much want to provide you with the Graduation ceremony you expect and deserve.
Current information suggests that from Step 4, which will take place no earlier than 21 June, the government hopes to be in a position to remove all legal limits on social contact and ease the restrictions on large events and performances that apply in Step 3. This will be subject to the results of a scientific Events Research Programme to test the outcome of certain pilot events through the spring and summer, where they will trial the use of testing and other techniques to cut the risk of infection.
The same Events Research Programme will guide decisions on whether all limits can be removed on life events such as Graduation ceremonies.
As soon as the results from the scientific Events Research Programme have been made available, we hope to be able to update you positively regarding your Graduation ceremony.
Please rest assured that all students will have the opportunity to attend a graduation ceremony, but these will only take place when we can offer you the day you deserve.
We will continue to update these web pages as soon as more information is available, and please ensure that your contact details are up to date via e:Vision.
