Summer Graduation Celebrations to mark achievements of graduates from 2019 (MA courses) 2020 and 2021

NUA Graduation Celebrations Live Stream – Wednesday 8 September, 5pm

We are delighted to be able to confirm more details for Graduation Celebrations at Norwich City Football Club in early September.

We have been consulting with students and exploring options to celebrate all that 2020 and 2021 graduates have achieved — a combined celebration for graduates from this year and last. 

The celebrations 

The celebrations will be held over two days: Tuesday 7 September 2021 and Wednesday 8 September.

Graduates and their guests will be invited to attend one of the ceremonies to celebrate with fellow students and some of the staff from their course.

Further information

  • There will be no charge for tickets to the celebrations, and graduates will be able to bring up to two guests each (tickets will be available for booking closer to the time).
  • We will also be streaming the celebrations online. 
  • Although the celebrations will be less formal than in previous years, we will ask graduating students (and 2020 graduates) to wear traditional gowns to mark the occasion. These will be available for booking/hire closer to the time.
  • We will share more details about timings, tickets, gown hire and all other arrangements over the next few weeks as plans are firmed up and decisions. 

We are looking forward to celebrating your time at Norwich University of the Arts, the completion of your degree and everything you have achieved.
