Celebrating your achievements

AUB Graduation

Class of 2020/2021

2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for everyone, with sacrifices made by so many – not least by our AUB Graduates.

We’re so proud of all of our outgoing students, and we shared in your disappointment as our Graduation 2020 activities were postponed due to Covid-19. Graduation Ceremonies are special occasions that recognise the work that students have put into their studies, and rightly mark their journey onwards to exciting new endeavours, careers and opportunities.

We promised that we'd do our very best to make sure that the Graduation Ceremonies took place when the time was right. We’re incredibly pleased to announce that that time has now come.

This year, we'll host six ceremonies across three days – the biggest Graduation we’ve ever held. We’d like to request your company at our Graduation event at Bournemouth’s Pavilion Theatre in July 2021, so please save the dates below.

  • 20 July 2021
  • 21 July 2021
  • 22 July 2021

We'll be in touch to let graduands know exactly which date their course will be taking part, with ceremony bookings going live in March 2021. Emails will be sent to AUB email addresses in January with a course timetable and further information on the registration process.

We kindly ask for your patience while we continue to make these important arrangements and, of course, we'll share how the Ceremony will run – in full compliance with any Coronavirus measures – beforehand.

But for now, pencil these dates in and we’ll be in touch with more information.

We look forward to seeing you!

Update: The university is still planning a physical graduation event on 20-22 July this year, but we're aware that will entirely depend on the lockdown and safety measures dictated by the government. At this stage we recommend that you save the date but don’t book anything until the situation becomes more clear. We will let you know as soon as we know any changes to this advice.
