Graduation June 2020 

In light of the current situation, and the expert advice we are receiving on a daily basis, we have had to take the very difficult decision to cancel all of our June graduation ceremonies, therefore our Graduation Ball has also regrettably been canceled. While we understand this will be very disappointing for students and their families, the health and wellbeing of our  University  community – and the general public – is of paramount importance and must be our primary concern. 


We hope to still celebrate with you at a later date – with plans being put in place to invite  you  to future ceremonies and to hold a Graduation Ball at a later date.

I have purchased tickets for the Graduation Ball. Will this be refunded?

Our University Finance Team have advised that all Graduation Ball tickets will be refunded automatically within the next 2 weeks.   You do not need to do anything to obtain your refund.  A refund will be processed to the card/account originally used for payment and this should be completed no later than Thursday 9th April 2020. 

We are exploring options to be able to hold the Graduation Ball at a later date to coincide with new ceremony dates. Further details will be provided in due course, as our planning progresses.


I have booked accommodation for graduation at the Stirling Court Hotel / University Accommodation - can I cancel and will I receive a full refund?

Yes. If you have made an accommodation booking, either directly with the University or via a third-party online travel agent (e.g., you will receive a full refund when you cancel the booking.

To cancel your booking contact or your online travel agent with the booking details. If you paid in advance, your purchasing card will be refunded – alternatively, you will not be charged.

Please note that it may take a little longer than usual to process your refund, however, we are striving to do this as quickly as possible.
