Class of Summer 2021 rescheduled graduation ceremonies
As you know, we had to make difficult decisions during the past 18 months in order to keep people safe during the pandemic; this included postponing the summer 2021 graduation ceremonies until it was safe to reschedule, in line with Welsh Government guidance. We made a commitment to you to rearrange the ceremonies in order to give you the opportunity to attend an in-person congregation, so that you can celebrate all of your hard work and achievements with your peers, family and friends.
We have great pleasure in announcing that our rescheduled ceremonies will take place in July 2022 in the new Swansea Arena, which is located next to Swansea Marina and beachfront.
We will release exact dates and the full timetable of ceremonies in due course and you will be emailed an invitation to register your attendance for your ceremony in due course. In the meantime, any further updates will be posted on the University’s graduation web pages.
Please note that our graduation ceremonies are subject to any Welsh Government restrictions that may be in place at that time. For that reason, we recommend that you take this into consideration should you need to arrange flights and/or hotel bookings. Should coronavirus, or any other unforeseen circumstances, compromise the safety of our graduates and their guests at the ceremonies, we will carefully review the situation, follow advice from the various authorities and communicate our plans with you as quickly as possible. We will notify you of the safety measures for the ceremonies closer to the event as these will reflect Welsh Government guidance at that time.
Please note that in the event that the graduation ceremonies are cancelled or delayed or the ceremonies are rescheduled (to include date, time and/or venue) due to circumstances beyond the control of Swansea University, the University will not be liable for any losses direct or otherwise incurred by the graduands or their guests.
We look forward to sharing your day with you in July.
