December 2020 Degree Congregations

Due to the current circumstances and restrictions in place across the UK, we have had to take the very difficult decision to postpone our on-campus graduation events that were due to take place in December 2020. This decision has been made with the best interests of our students and staff in mind. We will be running Virtual Graduation Celebrations in the week commencing Monday 7 December 2020 to mark the achievements of our Class of 2020 graduating cohort. We also remain committed to providing the Class of 2020 with an opportunity to come together, celebrate and reunite on campus when it is possible to do so. 

Force Majeure

Please note that, in the event of the University of Birmingham’s graduation ceremonies being cancelled, delayed or postponed due to circumstances beyond the control of the University, the University will not be liable for any losses direct or otherwise incurred by students or their guests. Circumstances that would constitute a force majeure may include, but are not limited to: fire, flood, explosion or any other incident that renders the venue in which the Degree Congregation is due to be held unsafe to use; terrorist act (or threat of a terrorist act); natural disaster; pandemic; industrial action; or a period of national mourning.
