Higher Education Graduation


Following the Government’s recent advice and lockdown measures to avoid all non-essential contact in efforts to delay the spread of COVID-19, we have sadly had to cancel our graduation ceremony.

This unfortunate decision has been made to ensure the safety of our staff and student community, along with family and friends who would have otherwise attended the busy event at Rotherham Minister.

We both appreciate and understand any inconvenience, frustration or upset this may cause and would like to assure you that this ceremony will be rearranged for a later date at which you and your loved ones can celebrate your wonderful achievements together safely.

Given the uncertainty of the weeks and months ahead in relation to the pandemic, this date is currently likely to be at some point in November 2020.

As shared previously, the refund booking window was up until Friday 17th April. If you would like to keep your booking, we will contact you regarding a new date and roll over your gown and photography booking.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please call our Higher Education Team on (01709) 722806.

We look forward to celebrating your brilliant efforts and achievements with you during the rearranged ceremony.
