Sadly, GCU has had to postpone this winter’s graduation ceremonies and planned graduation ball, to a later date. We appreciate this will be really disappointing for many, but in the context of the coronavirus crisis there is a clear need to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and all our families. Eligible students will receive their parchments by end of November 2020 to their home address. If you wish to update your home address please see for more information.

Further information about rescheduled graduation ceremonies can be found on our Graduation Day page.

Graduation day is the day you can say "I've done it"; it is a milestone in your life. You may be the first person in your family to graduate, or you may have come back to the University for Further Study. Whatever stage you are at in your learning or career, we are proud and glad that you have achieved your award with us.
