Ceremony Information

We hold graduation ceremonies in the spring and winter of each year. Student eligibility for ceremonies is determined by the date that your results are agreed and fully published, and the Graduation Team will contact you to confirm when your ceremony will be.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty around restrictions for large scale events in light of the current pandemic, and following guidance from our venue, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone our graduation ceremonies planned for February and March 2021.  

We understand this will be disappointing news, but the safety of our students, their families and friends, and our staff is our primary concern.

We hope those who attended the Virtual Celebrations that took place on Saturday 3rd October and 28th November via the Graduation.LIVE platform enjoyed the event with your family and friends, and as previously communicated, you can re-watch your celebration video via the exclusive link below. Simply click on your campus to open the video – why not share it with your family and friends, or save it for a keepsake.

In the meantime, we will continue to investigate when based on government and venue guidance we can resume face-to-face graduation ceremonies. We aim to provide an update in the New Year, and will notify you via one or more of the following methods; the graduation page on the ULaw website, social media, ELITE, campus screens and email. 

 

Spring 2021

Due to the ongoing uncertainty around large scale events, venue and travel restrictions caused by the pandemic and looking at the Government roadmap, regretfully we have made the very difficult decision to postpone the Spring 2021 (May 2021) graduation ceremonies. 

We understand this will be disappointing news for you, however, as always, the safety of you our students, your families and friends, and University staff continues to be our primary concern.

We will host a virtual celebration to acknowledge and celebrate your achievements and success, which will be free-of-charge for you and your family and friends to attend. We are also excited to share that you will be hearing from two new recipients of Honorary Doctorates at the event.  This is not intended to replace your formal graduation ceremony which will be hosted as soon as it is safe to do so.

Eligible Graduands will receive an official invitation via email to their ULaw & personal email accounts approximately 4 weeks prior to your event date. If you do not receive this email and are expecting one, please contact academic.registry@law.ac.uk to confirm your eligibility.

We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding. It is our hope that all UK residents will have received their COVID-19 vaccine by the end of 2021, making our events a safe environment for us all to celebrate your success in person.

Winter 2021

W are continuing to monitor the current pandemic and will update students & guests of any changes.
