Graduation and alumni

As you will know, we postponed our 2020 graduation ceremonies due to the coronavirus pandemic. We were hoping to hold our July 2020 ceremonies in March 2021, but with the current restrictions now in place, we are sorry to say this will not be possible.

In response, we have provisional ceremonies scheduled for July 2021 and are hoping to include both July and November 2020 cohorts in these. Schedules for the ceremonies will be subject to numbers attending and current government guidance.

We do understand how disappointing and frustrating this is, but are unable to give you any further details until we know whether we can proceed with these ceremonies, as we continue to follow government guidelines.

Please make sure that you have activated your graduate account on our online alumni platform, LJMU Connect, as invitations to register for our graduation ceremonies will be sent via this route, as well as to your LJMU and personal email addresses.

You can find more information about graduation and on the support we offer to all graduates as you consider your next steps on our dedicated graduation webpages.
