University Centre Sparsholt has decided to postpone the graduation ceremony at Winchester Cathedral for students scheduled on Wednesday 15 July 2020 due to coronavirus (Covid-19), to Friday 23 October 2020.
Assistant Principal for Higher Education, Caroline James said: “University Centre Sparsholt have taken the decision to postpone our graduation ceremony due to the ongoing situation with coronavirus. We love hosting this ceremony and seeing our students celebrate however, we understand the importance of minimising the risk to our students and guests at this time. We look forward to holding the ceremony in the autumn at a later date.”
Final year students who are graduating will still receive their awards and will be able to use their qualifications to apply for employment or further study. This is not affected by the postponement of the ceremony.
We are considering a number of options for how to deliver this safely and will be posting further updates on sparsholt.ac.uk/university-centre
