Graduation dates and times

The schedule allows you to see the date and time of your ceremony so you plan for your special day.

July 2020 Graduation

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

This is the proposed schedule for the Degree Ceremonies in July 2020. The University is closely monitoring the developments with the Coronavirus outbreak, and will be following government advice, especially in regards to proceeding with large public gatherings. This is a reminder that in the event of cancellation the University does not accept liability for any costs/expenses incurred by those due to attend the ceremony. 

If the Degree Ceremony cannot take place, if it is delayed or the ceremony date/time needs to change due to circumstances beyond our control The University of Leeds will not be liable for any losses direct or otherwise incurred by the graduands or their guests. 

Circumstances beyond our control can include fire, explosion, terrorist act (or threat of terrorist act), act of God, pandemic, national mourning (any member of the royal family), or as a result of any industrial action or dispute involving The University of Leeds.

All students are required to register a graduation choice.  Attendance at a ceremony is not guaranteed if the student does not register before the deadline.  If the ceremony is full the student may be allocated an alternative ceremony.

* Joint honours students should refer to their new parent school or department.
