All summer graduation ceremonies at Glasgow Uni have been postponed due to COVID-19

‘We’ve made a lot of difficult decisions but this one has been particularly hard’


In the latest announcement by the University of Glasgow in response to COVID-19, all graduation ceremonies that were due to take place this summer have been postponed.

The Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Glasgow University, Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli, shared the news in a video on the University of Glasgow Facebook page: “All of our Glasgow and Dumfries graduates will receive their degrees in the post.

“Currently, we hope that the winter graduation ceremonies will continue as planned in November, but accept that plans may have to change in line with the developing situation.

“We will contact those studying at our partner institutions in China and Singapore with news about graduations on those campuses as soon as we can.

“Thank you for your patience and understanding at this difficult time. We can’t wait to celebrate with you and your family and friends soon.”

This news just comes after all decided that the majority of Level 1 and Level 2 exams will not go ahead. This means that most first and second-year students will not be examined in the forthcoming exam diet.

Please do take care of yourselves and of those around you. There is much more information on what the University is doing to deal with the pandemic as well as specific advice for students on our coronavirus web page.​
