Graduation ceremonies
Due to restrictions in relation to COVID-19, and informed by Government guidance, we have taken the difficult decision to stand-down planning for the February Graduations. We know this will come as a disappointment but the health and safety of our graduates, their guests, and university staff are of paramount importance. To ensure our 2020 completers receive a graduation experience we will instead be offering online/virtual graduations. We anticipate these occurring in early 2021. Arrangements for these are being put in place and we will communicate details in the coming weeks. We will also review whether a celebratory event could be held in September should Government restrictions change.

Virtual graduation for Peninsula Medical School

The next generation of doctors from the University of Plymouth’s Peninsula Medical School celebrated the start of a new chapter, as they graduated early to support the NHS in its hour of need.

Most of the School’s 78 final-year medics took part in the virtual ceremony, with family and friends able to watch live, or catch up afterwards, on a private YouTube feed.

The interactive virtual graduation was made possible by First Sight Media, a live streaming and video production company who donated their services for free to ensure the students were able to celebrate their graduation and begin their work supporting frontline NHS staff.
