Graduation ceremonies 2020 and 2021

To the graduates and awardees of Shetland College UHI and NAFC Marine Centre UHI in 2020 and 2021 

It is with great sadness we have made the difficult decision to cancel face-to-face graduation and award ceremonies and celebration events during 2021 due to COVID-19.  

Graduation and award ceremonies are the highlight of our year. However, our priority is to keep our students, staff and communities safe, so it is impossible to plan the events we would usually hold.  

We will invite the class of 2021 to join us in our online graduation and awards celebration week in the autumn. We know it won't be the same but hope it will mark this important time and success in your life.  

We also wanted to let you know about this decision as soon as we could. We know how hard you have worked to continue your studies in these really challenging circumstances. These events are an important way to celebrate your success with family and friends.   

Students will still receive their awards by email and post as usual and will graduate in absentia.  

Sadly, this also means we won't hold any celebration events this year for those students who graduated or received an award last year.  

We will continue to look for ways we can celebrate together in the future. 

Please contact if you have any questions or concerns.  

Take care of yourselves and your communities.
