Winter Graduation

Dear Graduand,

January is an important month in the University calendar. In 2018, the Winter Graduation Ceremony will be held on Friday 26th January 2018– two days after Foundation Day – when the University celebrates its long tradition as a Higher Education institution. This year, Winter Graduation will be held in The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King.

Graduation is always a joyous time as we celebrate each other’s achievements. It is also a time for reflection and contemplation. We give thanks to those who have in some way helped you on your ‘journey’. We reflect on the support of fellow students, staff, friends and family, whose encouragement and dedication have been so vital during your studies.

You have reached the end of this stage in your studies and many of you will have fond memories of Liverpool Hope and the people here. Please stay in touch with fellow classmates and lecturers through our Graduate Association which presently has thousands of members spread across the world. We are constantly supplementing the range of member benefits, so please join up and stay in touch.

I look forward to celebrating this important event in your life with you.


With best wishes,


Professor Gerald J. Pillay
Vice-Chancellor & Rector

FAQs

What happens if I am unable to attend the ceremony?

Under University rules, candidates are required to attend in person to be admitted to their degrees, but sympathetic consideration will be given to an application for admission in absentia.

You should assume that applications for admission in absentia have been approved unless you hear to the contrary. After the ceremonies, the degree certificate and a copy of the appropriate degree programme will be posted to you by registered mail. Students who initially apply to be admitted to their degrees in absentia and who subsequently change their mind and wish to attend the ceremony to be admitted to their degree in person should be aware that whilst every effort will be made to allow them to graduate in person, it may not always be possible to do so.

 

Not sure if you can attend?

If you do not know whether you will be able to attend the Graduation ceremony, you should complete the online booking form on the assumption that you will be present to receive your degree in person. If you subsequently wish to be admitted in absentia, or defer your ceremony to a later date, you must put this in writing to the Graduation Team no later than Friday 8th December 2017.

 

Student Debtors

Students who owe more than £200 of academic debt (e.g. fees, field trips, library debt) to Liverpool Hope University will not be allowed to graduate, either in person or in absentia, until the debt has been paid.

If you find yourself in this position, at the earliest possible opportunity, please contact:

  • a member of the Finance Team on 0151 291 3339
  • for library fines a member of the Library Team on 0151 291 2000

(Note: Any student who owes more than £200 to the University of non-academic debt (e.g. accommodation, short term loans), will not receive any guest tickets unless this debt is cleared in advance of the graduation ceremony)

 

Graduation Merchandise

To help mark your special day and to provide students with the opportunity to buy a memento of their time at Hope, the University produces a range of Graduation merchandise.
