Graduation ceremonies 2020

Your health and safety are our priority and so it was with great regret that the university partnership took the difficult decision not to hold any graduation ceremonies in 2020. 

Graduation is a time for you to celebrate with your families and friends as well as your tutors and other students on your course. We do not want you to miss out on that experience.


Marking your graduation this year

Once you have received your certificate and celebrating your graduation at home with your family and friends, we'd love to hear about it and share in your success. You can print, cut, stick and celebrate with our range of graduation day downloads. You can also search for 'UHIGrad' for our special GIF on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and search for our range of Facebook frames by using ‘UHI Grad 2020’.

Don't forget to add #UHIGrad on your social media posts and if we share them, we’ll send you a £20 Amazon voucher to thank you. You can also email us your photos or videos, if you prefer, along with your name, what you studied and where.

We will be hosting a week of celebration online for the graduates of 2020, week commencing 28 September. We will be publishing online celebratory webpages featuring video messages from the Chancellor, HRH The Princess Royal, the university's principal and vice-chancellor and also your own local principal, or head of department for nursing and midwifery and postgraduate history students. You will also be able to download a graduate list for your home campus, by course, for you to keep as souvenir for now.

This will also coincide with the publication of a list of all graduates in The Herald and The Press and Journal which you will be able to pre-order. If you want to read more about how we will use your data for publication in these newspapers or in the online graduation lists, please read our Privacy Notice.

If you do not wish to be included in either of these publications or listings, please go to student records and login with your student ID and password. Click on 'student hub' at the top of the page and under the 'to do' section click on the link in the awards and graduation section.

Celebrating your achievements in person in 2021

We will be in touch to provide more details of this soon and to invite students to special events in 2021 where your achievements will be celebrated when it is safe to do so with family and friends. The format and timing of these events will be determined in due course. They won't be called graduations, as you'll have already graduated, but rest assured, they'll be an occasion to remember.
