Dear Keele University,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

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?

2) If no to question 1., are there plans to have an in-person graduation, when restrictions have been lifted? If so, will they be the same as previous cohorts (2019, 2018, etc.) and when are they currently planned for?

3) For your students who are due to graduate in 2021, will they have an in-person graduation? If no, what are your plans for these students?

Yours faithfully,

Kamran Ali

foi, Keele University

Dear Kamran
Ref- FOI2021/116
Further to your request for information, please find the University's
response below.
Where you asked:

Request 

1) For your students who graduated in 2020, have they had an in-person
graduation yet?

No

2) If no to question 1., are there plans to have an in-person graduation,
when restrictions have been lifted? If so, will they be the same as
previous cohorts (2019, 2018, etc.) and when are they currently planned
for?
Planning is currently underway for ceremonies to be held in 2022, to allow
graduates to celebrate back on the campus where they studied, with friends
and family around them. In recognition that the ceremonies have been
delayed, the University plans to make them extra special for those
attending. This delay is primarily due to ongoing uncertainties as to the
national position and what, if any, Covid restrictions might still be in
place or be introduced during the summer 2021.

3) For your students who are due to graduate in 2021, will they have an
in-person graduation? If no, what are your plans for these students?

There will be no in person ceremonies in 2021, these are planned to be
held in 2022. This delay is primarily due to ongoing uncertainties as to
the national position and what, if any, Covid restrictions might still be
in place or be introduced during the summer 2021.
The University has also published this information on our website
at: [1]https://www.keele.ac.uk/graduation/
 
Should you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Best wishes,
Legal, Governance & Compliance Team
