Next academic year

 

Graduation

Following guidance from the UK and Scottish Governments, the University has taken the decision to postpone all of its graduation ceremonies that were scheduled to take place in July 2020. Students due to graduate at these ceremonies, if eligible, will now receive their degree parchment by post to their home address, which we are aiming to undertake by the end of July.

All students eligible to graduate in the summer will be invited to attend a ceremony at a future date.

Winter ceremonies
Glasgow 26 and 27 Nov 2019
London 04 Nov 2019

 

Summer ceremonies
Glasgow 7 and 8 July 2020 (Postponed)
