Celebrating your achievements

AUB Graduation

Graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2022 will be held 5-6 July 2022 at the Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth. Registration will open in early March 2022.

Graduation is the culmination of all your hard work while studying at Arts University Bournemouth and BPC. Our graduation ceremonies mark this important milestone with an exciting and truly memorable occasion at the Pavilion Theatre in Bournemouth’s vibrant town centre.

Start your day strolling along Bournemouth’s seven miles of golden sand, before heading to the Pavilion Theatre to collect your robes and meet your collaborators, course mates and tutors. Have your picture taken by official photographers before joining in cheer and applause as you cross the stage in front of our proud AUB community.

Formalities aside, enjoy a glass of something bubbly in our exclusive beachside marquee and share your memories with your course team; while looking back over the town that’s shared in your memories, achievements, and successes.

We’re looking forward to celebrating your graduation with you!

Key Information

  • Attending your graduation ceremony is optional. You’ll still complete your degree, even if you don’t attend. Certificates are usually posted in August after the ceremony takes place.
  • Registration opens in early March 2022, and we’ll send an email with an invitation to register. You must register before the deadline to either:
    • Confirm your attendance and guarantee your place in the ceremony, OR
    • Let us know that you won’t be attending
  • If you don’t register before registration closes, we can’t guarantee you a place in the ceremony. Keep an eye on your student email address so you don’t miss Graduation notifications.
  • You don’t need a ticket to attend your own ceremony, but you'll be given a complimentary ticket to attend the post-ceremony Beach Marquee Reception where you can enjoy a glass of champagne. You’ll need to show your ticket to gain entry to the reception.
  • You can purchase up to a maximum of two guest tickets – only guests with tickets will be admitted entry to the ceremony and post-ceremony Beach Marquee Reception.

Covid-19

We'll make all possible efforts to ensure that Graduation 2022 is entirely safe, and compliant with any Coronavirus measures issued, but we are entirely dependent upon circumstances later on in the year. We continue to review the situation, and we will respond in line with any Government guidance in place in July 2022.

This may include cancelling or postponing the event should we regrettably be unable to hold a Ceremony. We recommend any travel plans/accommodation bookings are made with caution and where possible allow for free cancellation if necessary.
