The first 18 ceremonies will take place between 25-29 April, with over 4,000 students in attendance, for Class of July 2020 and January 2021 cohorts. 

96 of those graduating this April are current LJMU staff, who have undertaken postgraduate studies alongside their current job roles. 

Another 11,000 students will then graduate at a further two weeks' worth of ceremonies this summer, from 4–15 July. 

For those graduating, LJMU has created a quick guide for what to do on the day, this includes advice on arriving 2 hours before the ceremony, picking up gowns from the Metropolitan Cathedral, plus where to sit for the ceremony in the Anglican Cathedral. 

Each ceremony will be live streamed for additional guests, or those who can’t attend, via the LJMU graduation page.  

LJMU is asking graduates to share their images and videos of the celebrations on social media, tagging @LJMU and using #LJMUGrad and #ClassOf2020. 

Former students are also encouraged to join the LJMU Connect community, Liverpool John Moores University’s network for alumni, to connect with others, stay in touch with course mates and keep up to date with other alumni opportunities. 

LJMU Student Futures: Careers, Employability and Enterprise team will be in attendance too, to offer career advice, as part of graduates' lifelong access to LJMU careers services, as well as LJMU's pop up graduation shop, for memorabilia from the day.

LJMU is delighted to finally give our students, and graduates, the graduation ceremony they deserve.  We can't wait to kick start the summer of ceremonies and enjoy the celebrations with our now alumni.
