Graduation

April Graduation ceremonies cancelled 

After careful consideration, USC has decided to cancel the April graduation ceremonies. This is in line with expert advice that all non-essential, organised gatherings of 500 people or more must be cancelled from Monday 16th March to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Graduation is our favourite time of the year, and we always look forward to celebrating the success of our graduands. We are saddened to have to make this announcement and recognise that it will be a great disappointment to you. However, the health and well-being of our community - particularly our most vulnerable - must come first.
What happens next?
  • All graduation fees will automatically be refunded in full – this may take up to 30 days because there are a lot to process. You do not need to contact USC or Reed Graduations to arrange this.
  • You will graduate in absentia. Your electronic documents will be available the week commencing Monday 13 April and hard copies of your documents will be posted after this. Please ensure your mail address is correct in USC Central.
We hope to be able to provide you with an opportunity to cross the stage at a future ceremony.
