Graduations

Graduations are always a highlight of the University calendar. Sadly, like lots of activities this year, graduations can’t go ahead the way they normally would.

We are planning 2020 and 2021 celebrations to give our graduates the best possible experience.

To stay informed, please ensure your email address and mobile number is kept up to date so that we can contact you to let you know what’s happening and keep an eye out for updates. Current students can update your contact details in StudentOnline, while graduates who no longer have access to their student account can submit a question to ASK a Question, requesting their details be updated.
