Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation in the UK, our in-person graduation ceremonies are currently postponed.

Postponed ceremonies

As soon as we have further information about the feasibility of running in-person graduations again, in line with social distancing and health and safety restrictions, we will share this with you.

For further advice regarding the COVID-19 situation from the University, please visit our Covid-19 Advice pages.

Latest update - Friday 5 February 2021

We sent out individual communications to all affected students with further details regarding graduation plans going forward due to the COVID-19 situation. If you have any queries, please contact graduation@bathspa.ac.uk.

Graduation ceremonies

We hold both winter and summer graduation ceremonies.

Which ceremony can I attend?

The ceremony you can attend is determined by when you complete your studies, your school and your course. If you are eligible, you will be sent an invitation by email at the appropriate time.

  • If you are graduating with a major/minor or joint (equally balanced) combined degree which has been taught across two schools, you will be able to choose which of the schools you wish to graduate with.

  • Combined awards will be presented as a single group within each school.

  • Creative Arts will be treated the same as a joint combined degree, and you will be able to choose at the time of booking which of the two relevant schools you graduate with (if applicable). Creative Arts degrees will be presented as a single group within each school, e.g. if you have studied Art and Music, you will graduate with other Creative Arts awards from the school, not with BA Fine Art or BA Music.

  • All students on a Specialised Education course (also known as the ‘3+1’ of Primary/Secondary pathway), which leads straight into the PGCE course) will graduate with the School for Education, regardless of whether they do a combination of subjects within this course.
