Online Graduation Celebrations

Class of 2020 Celebrations

The University will be holding online graduation celebrations during the week 27th-31st July 2020 to celebrate the awarding of University degrees to the Class of 2020. Further details for how you can participate as well as a full schedule listing the date/time of each event is provided below.

The online graduation celebrations are an opportunity to mark and celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2020 at the point that you complete your programme. They are not intended to replicate or replace the traditional congregations ceremonies that are held on campus as we still intend to offer the Class of 2020 the chance of a physical graduation ceremony on campus if and when the social distancing restrictions allow us to do so.

To ensure that we are able to contact you about future graduation ceremonies on campus, please ensure that your personal email address is up to date on S3P.

Online Celebrations

The celebrations will take place using a platform called Flipgrid and will ‘go live’ on the dates/times indicated as per the schedule. They will be open and accessible to all so please do share with your family and friends.

Schedule for Online Graduation Celebrations 

Each event will include messages and content from individuals and teams based centrally within the University as well as a dedicated space for messages and content from the staff in your individual School – those that have taught and supported you throughout your time at Newcastle.

We hope that you would also like to participate in the celebrations by submitting your own short video messages. You will be sent an email in the days following the release of your final results (week commencing 13th July) with all the necessary instructions and guidance for how to do so.

We know that we cannot replace the special feeling of celebrating with friends and family on campus, but we hope that the online events will at least offer the chance to celebrate your achievements until a time when we can invite you back to campus.
