As with measures taken over this last year, the safety and welfare of our graduates and staff lie at the heart of every decision we make.
In line with government guidelines, it is with sadness to share that we are not yet able to hold large-scale events at an indoor venue. Therefore, it won’t be possible to proceed with our traditional on-campus ceremony event as we had previously hoped.
Whilst it is so important to celebrate your achievements, it is just as important to celebrate them in the safest way possible – which is at this stage virtual.
The 2020 and 2021 Awards Ceremony will be streamed live from Newbold Church on Sunday 11 July – 11:00am (BST). All graduating students will need to register and can attend this event via Zoom.
Family and friends of graduates will be able to watch live the ceremony in real-time on this webpage, or on our College Facebook page.
