Graduation Ceremonies


2021 UCL Virtual Graduations

UCL will be holding virtual graduation ceremonies for the 2021 cohort of students.

UCL has been exploring whether we can come together to celebrate your graduation safely in person in 2021. Many of you will be looking for certainty, so that you can book travel and accommodation for yourself and your family and friends who wish to celebrate with you.

Unfortunately, the course of the pandemic remains difficult to predict and it is not clear when Government guidance will allow us to hold in-person events again, or if we will be living with social distancing measures later in the year. Given this uncertainty, we have decided to postpone in-person ceremonies until at least 2022, and students who are due to graduate in 2021 will be invited to a virtual ceremony this year. The virtual ceremony will allow an opportunity to come together to recognise your achievements and to celebrate with your faculty and peers.

Some postgraduate virtual ceremonies will be taking place in July 2021 and the majority of postgraduate and undergraduate virtual ceremonies will be taking place in September/October 2021. Further information will be sent via email.
