Graduation

We are delighted that the Graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2020 and 2021 are now planned for September 2021. The ceremony date for the Class of 2020 is Monday 13 September. The Class of 2021 will follow on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 September 2021. The Graduation Ceremonies will be held on campus at Regent's University London. 

COVID-19 measures at Graduation 

We are working hard to keep our community safe during the pandemic. When you visit our campus for Graduation we will have a number of measures in place. 

  • We have reduced the capacity of our venue on our beautiful campus and the venue will be well ventilated to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19
  • We are asking that graduands and their guests, all take a COVID-19 lateral flow test within 72 hours of their Graduation ceremony or be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 
  • We will be encouraging the use of face-coverings during the ceremonies 
  • No graduands will be required to shake hands during the ceremony 
  • There is also an enhanced cleaning regime in place and hand sanitiser stations throughout the campus. 

Travelling from an amber or red list country?

We are aware that some countries remain on the red and amber lists for UK travel from abroad making it more difficult to travel to the UK. We understand that not everyone will be able to attend or quarantine in time for their ceremony and we are exploring options for those affected to attend future graduation ceremonies. We will contact you as soon as possible with an update.

You will receive further information via email, please look out for this in your inbox. Any queries should be directed to the Student Hub in the first instance.
