Your graduation is an official celebration of your accomplishments during your time at the University of Leicester. These pages have all the information you need to be fully prepared for your graduation ceremony, as well as what to expect on the day.

Regrettably, we now have taken the difficult decision to postpone our graduation ceremonies which were due to be held on 14 to 17 July 2020

We know that this will be disappointing news for everyone but the safety and wellbeing of graduands and guests is our primary concern. We have also taken into account in this decision the ongoing uncertainty around how long restrictions on travel and large gatherings will remain in place, and the impact of this on our ability to prepare for graduation ceremonies and on our students’ ability to plan to attend with their guests. All students will still be given the opportunity to attend a graduation ceremony. Additional ceremonies will be held during the 2020/21 academic year, and further information will be available in due course.

See live updates and stay tuned during graduation week across our social media pages!
