Dear Mr Ali, 
I am writing to confirm that the University has now completed its search for the 
information which you requested on 09 May 2021. 
You requested the following: 
I have an interest in how you have approached your graduation ceremonies 
during the Coronavirus pandemic. Please could you answer the following: 
1.  For your students who graduated in 2020, have they had an in-person 
graduation yet? 
Brunel University London have not been able to hold an in-person graduation for our 
2020 graduates. However, we did hold a virtual graduation for our 2020 graduates. 
2.  If no to question 1., are there plans to have an in-person graduation, 
when restrictions have been lifted? If so, wil  they be the same as 
previous cohorts (2019, 2018, etc.) and when are they currently 
planned for? 
Brunel University London wil  invite all 2020 graduates to a ceremony in the future. 
Four out Postgraduates this wil  be from December if restrictions allow and for 
Undergraduates this wil  be from July 2022. It wil  be the same format as for previous 
years. We are planning the winter ceremonies for the Postgraduate 2021 cohort with 
the intention for extra 1500 Postgraduate students from 2020 to attend extra 
ceremonies on a first come first served basis, that is held at an external venue. We 
are then planning to invite all students that have not as yet attended to our extended 
Summer Graduation in July 2022. One week wil  host the usual 2022 cohort and the 
second week wil  be for 2020 and 2021 cohorts. 
3.  For your students who are due to graduate in 2021, wil  they have an 
in-person graduation? If no, what are your plans for these students? 
Brunel University London Undergraduates due to Graduate in Summer 2021 have 
been invited to a virtual Graduation, and Undergraduates wil  be invited to the 2022 
in-person ceremonies in July 2022. Al  Postgraduate students graduating in 2021, 
including those invited to the summer virtual celebration wil  be invited to the 
December 2021 even. The December ceremonies are for out Postgraduates only. 

We believe we have provided you with all the information you requested.  However, if
