Celebrating your achievements

Check our Graduation FAQs for more information

Graduation ceremonies

Graduation is a moment for celebration, to stop and reflect on your academic achievements and recognise the hard work you have put into your studies. We want to make sure that this moment is celebrated fully and, as such, have made the decision to postpone this year’s ceremonies from November 2020 to Monday 1 - Friday 5 March 2021.

This year, the graduation ceremonies will be held at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC). The dates for each faculty's ceremony will be released later in the year and we'll be updating these pages with more information when it's avaliable.

You can watch last year’s ceremonies on our YouTube channel, as well as the ceremony highlights from the day.
