Following the latest government advice on social distancing, we are sorry to announce that the Liverpool John Moores University Graduation Ceremonies will have to be postponed.
As you know, we are determined to give students the celebration they deserve and we will focus on delivering graduation ceremonies when it is safe to do so and we can be confident in planning for a future date.
Clearly a four-week delay in the lifting of national restrictions makes it unsafe to proceed with our planned schedule of ceremonies in early July.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Campbell said it was with “great regret” that the ceremonies were delayed but that the decision was made based on government advice and the “need to minimise travel in the region during that time”.
“I realise this is very disappointing news. Like everyone at LJMU, I was really looking forward to seeing students and congratulating them on the successful completion of their studies, however, we must all play our part in keeping our communities safe.
“This decision has not been taken easily and there has been a lot of heartache involved but I hope students and families will understand.”
“We will be writing to all students directly to explain the position and will write again with new dates for graduation as soon as we are able to confirm the rescheduled timetable.”
