Congratulations to the graduating class of 2020

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.

As the effects of the pandemic continue, we are arranging to give the class of 2020 the chance to join together with friends and family wherever you maybe, to celebrate your achievements with an online graduation celebration in January (date to be confirmed).

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.

Moving forward we would also like to make you aware that the provisional dates for the graduation ceremonies in July 2021 will be between  5 - 16 July at Liverpool Cathedral.

If you require any further information, please email
