Graduation 2020

We celebrate you

Hats off to you!

Congratulations – you did it!

Vice-Chancellor professor Sue Rigby at Locksbrook CampusThis wasn’t how any of us envisaged things would be when we started this year back in September, and it has been a real challenge to adapt in such a short space of time to working and studying in new ways.

Everything we've been through in 2020 makes your achievements in completing your degree this year all the more remarkable.

You've had to cope with challenges not faced by students in previous years, and you should feel extremely proud of your achievements. We certainly do!

Although we can't be together this summer to celebrate your graduation with a ceremony as we usually would, we are working on plans for ceremonies as soon as government guidelines allow, so that you can celebrate your achievements with friends, family, your tutors and fellow students.

Professor Sue Rigby

Everything you've been through in 2020 makes your achievements all the more remarkable

"The reality of it is, you've managed to get your degrees in the most bizarre of circumstances, and the fact that you have done that, shown such resilience and such tenacity and attention to detail, is assurance to us that you're ready to leave us... you are the kind of people that we would want to send out into the world."

– Mark Langley, Head of Bath School of Music and Performing Arts
