Summer 2021 virtual celebrations
It was with a heavy heart that we had to postpone the in person graduation ceremonies we had planned for July 2021. These ceremonies are now being rescheduled to take place in March, May and July 2022 and further information will be published in due course.
Virtual celebrations took place in July to mark your achievements.
You can watch these back below.
Postgraduate graduation ceremonies are scheduled to be held the week commencing Monday 10 January 2022. To be eligible to attend these graduation ceremonies you must be a postgraduate student with an expected end date of '2021' on your student record.
Please note: graduation dates are subject to change if unforeseen circumstances outside the control of the Events Team force us to make changes. This includes the current COVID-19 pandemic which has already caused severe disruption to our graduation ceremonies.
You will be contacted regarding any future event as and when we are safely able to do so. However, following recent government advice and with restrictions expected to be in place for some time, we may not be in a position to confirm any such plans until Autumn 2021 at the earliest.
In absentia conferments
In absentia ceremonies enable students who complete their studies outside of the graduation ceremony periods to have their degree conferred and receive their degree certificate.
Becoming an alumni
After your graduation you are welcomed into our family of more than 190,000 alumni. Find out how you can keep in touch with the University of Sheffield and our alumni benefits.
