Awards & Ceremonies

Winter Ceremonies - January 2021

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of Warwick has decided that we cannot hold our January 2021 degree ceremonies safely based on current government guidance. Cancelling these ceremonies is a measure we hoped we would not have to take, but our first priority must continue to be the safety of our community. Students meeting the requirements of their award will still graduate in January 2021, but this will be in absentia and they will receive their degree certificate by post instead. Students expected to be eligible will be invited to register an address for their certificate in November 2020. We are exploring the feasibility of enabling family and friends to celebrate with our graduating students at a later point in 2021, but this will still depend on government restrictions. We will inform all eligible students, graduands and graduates of our revised plans in early 2021.

For up to date information on degree ceremonies, please see our coronavirus updates.

Summer Ceremonies - July 2020

The July 2020 degree ceremonies have been postponed. Eligible students have graduated in absentia with certificates sent in the post/made available for collection. If you are yet to receive notification that your certificate has been posted, please contact us.
