Graduation Day is a momentous occasion for our students, and we are delighted to confirm we are back to holding in-person graduations this year, with ceremonies planned for 29 August 2022

As well as graduating HN and Degree students, we will be celebrating the success of PhD students who have been awarded their PhD since last August. 

We will also be holding local celebration events at, or near, each of our campuses for students who graduated in 2020 and 2021, so they can come together in a familiar setting to celebrate their achievements. More information on these events will follow soon.

Can we help?

If you have any questions about your graduation, please contact graduation@sruc.ac.uk.
