In-person Graduation Ceremonies for the Class of 2021 take place during the week commencing 1 November 2021, with ceremonies in the morning and afternoon from Tuesday to Friday.

The annual graduations saw 12 ceremonies take place in the beautiful and historic Worcester Cathedral.

University of Worcester Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor David Green CBE DL, said: “We are delighted to be able to welcome back our graduates of 2021 to celebrate their many achievements. Each and every member of the graduating class of 2021 faced the challenge of exceptional circumstances and succeeded in the face of adversity.  

“These ceremonies will be a powerful springboard for the renewal of our society. Among our graduating class of 2021 are our health graduates, who not yet fully qualified, volunteered to go into the front line at the time of greatest need, to work with the sick, to face the dangers of infection. These ceremonies will be a chance for us to celebrate the courage and dedication of these remarkable young people. The great majority of our 2021 graduates are already fully engaged in the workforce – providing the skilled, professional work on which society depends – in education, business, public service, health and more.” 

In June, the University of Worcester was the first in the UK to host in-person graduations for the Class of 2020, whose ceremonies were postponed by the pandemic. 

November’s ceremonies built on the success of the summer celebrations with post-ceremony receptions once again taking place at the University’s City Campus, where the British Medical Association was founded in 1832.
