Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of London has decided to postpone the graduation ceremony for students of our distance and flexible learning programmes which was scheduled to take place in London on 3 March at the Barbican Centre. Our international student community, along with friends and family, scheduled to attend the ceremony consists of some 4,000 attendees from over 100 countries.
Pro Vice-Chancellor Chris Cobb said: “We have taken the difficult decision to postpone the event due to the ongoing coronavirus issue. We truly regret the inconvenience caused but, after careful consideration, we felt it important to minimise the risk to our students and their guests. This event is different to many others due to the large numbers of attendees travelling from affected regions and the potential impact it may have on others attending and travelling back to regions which are currently unaffected.”
