Update on Winter Congregation 2021

(13 November 2020)

Earlier this week, we advised those students eligible to attend Winter 2021 Congregation ceremonies that we have taken the decision to postpone these ceremonies. This is due to the ongoing significant measures designed to manage the spread of Covid-19.

We acknowledge that this is very disappointing news for those students involved, but with the uncertain national situation we feel that the health and safety of graduands and guests should be paramount.

These ceremonies will be rescheduled and are currently anticipated to take place in April 2021. Winter 2021 Congregation awards will be legally conferred on 7 January 2021 ‘in absentia’ and degree documents will be dispatched shortly after this date.

We have advised students they must register for their degree documents and confirm their interest in the rescheduled ceremonies via the Congregation and Parchment registration process on DUO, between 18 November - 16 December 2020.
