Coronavirus information (updated 25th April, 2022)
Resumption of in person graduation with guests
The University has confirmed that that guests will be returning to Congregations from 29 April, 2022 onwards, unless of course there is a future resurgence of a severe COVID variant with high hospitalization.
Graduating in absence
Congregations will continue for those who wish to take their degree in absence. If you have already graduated in absence the option remains to celebrate your degree with guests in a Senate House ceremony at a future date that will be as close as possible to in-person graduation.
If you choose to graduate in absence now guests are allowed in the Senate House you will not be able to come back to celebrate your degree at a later date.
Further information, including dates of future ceremonies, can be found on the University website.
Further information on how to register to graduate in absence can be found on the ‘registering to graduate‘ page.
Certificates and transcripts
Transcripts for degrees awarded based on assessments modified as a result of COVID-19 will include brief wording explaining that the candidate undertook alternative assessments, and provide a link to a fuller explanation of the nature of the assessment, hosted on the CamData website.
Paper copies of certificates and transcripts for everyone who has graduated in absence during the lockdown period will be produced and posted as soon as staff are able to return to the workplace. Further copies may be ordered once this service is available again.
A service that allows you to access your official transcript electronically remains in place and has been enhanced to include an image of your graduation certificate. This subscription service to Digitary allows you to share documents on-line with other organisations such as employers or other educational institutions. Further information is available on the University website.
