Edinburgh Uni have confirmed that all person graduation ceremonies this year will be cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In a confirmed Learn notification this morning, the message read, “Due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions around holding large scale events, the University has taken the difficult decision to cancel all in-person graduation ceremonies in 2021.

“This will impact our summer and winter graduations this year.”
