We are currently planning for physical ceremonies to go ahead in the summer of 2022, the dates of which have been published below. All students invited to these ceremonies have now been contacted and registration via the RISIS Portal has now closed. We are able to consider additional late registrations up until 17.00 on Friday 20 May 2022, but we cannot now guarantee inclusion in a specific ceremony. After this date, we will unfortunately not be able to accommodate any additional attendees at our summer 2022 ceremonies. If you were expecting to attend a ceremony in the summer but have not received any emails from us, please email email@example.com as soon as possible, and by Friday 20 May at the very latest.
Ceremonies originally scheduled for people who formally graduated in July 2020 and July 2021 will now take place in the summer of 2022.
The holding of such physical ceremonies is of course still reliant on any COVID-19 related restrictions that the UK Government, whilst unlikely, may re-introduce at any point. If there are any changes to UK Govt. policy that would affect our graduation ceremonies, we will of course be in touch with our invited graduates/graduands as soon as possible.
We are now able to offer guests with tickets (up to two per graduand/graduate) to be seated in the Great Hall for your ceremony. If any new Government restrictions are put in place that mean we have to limit capacity in the Great Hall, guest tickets will transfer to ceremony livestream rooms on the Whiteknights campus.
Our Essentials webpages are also being refreshed regularly with the latest information and advice, so please continue to monitor these as well as your University email address (or personal email address for those who have already formally graduated but will be attending their postponed ceremony in the future).
The Graduation Team are currently dividing our time between working remotely from home and in our office. In line with the most up-to-date UK Government guidance we may have to move to solely working from home at short notice, which may impact on our ability to provide a few of our services.
