2020 Graduates – September Graduation Event on Plymouth Hoe

The University will be hosting a formal in-person Graduation Ceremony for 2020 completers from 19-24 September 2022 in the Graduation Marquee on Plymouth Hoe.
This is in addition to the virtual ceremonies that had to be held instead due to pandemic restrictions.
This decision has been taken following the Graduation Event Option Survey, which was sent to 2020 completers. We had a good response and thanks to everyone who took part to share their views in helping us to shape a suitable event. All those who completed it have received further details about when each ceremony will take place, how to register and book tickets for up to two guests. If you completed the survey, but did not receive an email please contact graduation@plymouth.ac.uk.
We will also provide other graduation information, including robing and photography services – so there is no action you need to take until you receive that email.
If you did not complete the survey, but would now like to attend, please email graduation@plymouth.ac.ukso that we can let you know how to register your interest. 

Plymouth hoe is a superb place to have a graduation. There are very few places, in England at least, where you will find somewhere as beautiful as that to graduate."
