Graduation schedule

We're really sorry but Graduation 2020 is postponed. We know that our graduation ceremonies are the highlight of the University’s academic year – and even more important than this, these are the culmination of your hard work, and an important opportunity for you to celebrate your achievements with your friends and family.

As a consequence of public health actions to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have taken the very painful decision to postpone our summer 2020 Graduation ceremonies.
