Class of 2020 graduation celebrations postponed until September 2021

Due to the uncertainty around the lifting of Government COVID-19 restrictions, we have made the difficult and disappointing decision to postpone further the Class of 2020 graduation celebrations until September 2021.

The rescheduled ceremonies will be held between 1 – 14 September 2021, we are currently working through plans for when each School will hold its celebration, please continue to check your emails for updates.

We will provide gowns and hoods free to students as a thank you for your patience. If you had already paid for your gown hire, we will be working with Ede and Ravenscroft to arrange a refund. You will also be able to keep your hat after your ceremony, as a memento of your special day.

Every graduate will receive also a special Class of 2020 Celebration Brochure to mark your achievements throughout your time with us.

We plan to email you again in June inviting you to formally register for your graduation ceremony. At that point we will also be able to give you more information about the organisation of the day, as well as what else you need to do to secure your place at your graduation.

Do we have your current contact details?

So that we can keep you up to date with information regarding your ceremony please update your contact details on our alumni and supporters website.

If you have not yet received your certificate, please email us at ntu.graduations@ntu.ac.uk.

Certificates for students who are completing their studies this summer and who have had their award conferred by 8 July 2021, will be posted to their permanent home address on record in late August 2021.

Please ensure that the name you have recorded with the University is your full legal name as it should appear on your certificate. Once your award has been conferred at the Exam Board for your course there will be no opportunity to change your name, as your certificate must reflect the name you were conferred under.

We cannot amend our records if you have already been awarded.

Please ensure that your permanent home address and phone number on record are up to date by 23 July 2021. Any changes made after this date may not be picked up and may result in your certificate being posted to the incorrect address. You can update your address via your NOW portal.

Graduate Outcomes Survey

Graduate Outcomes survey - and how NTU is still here to support you

The Graduate Outcomes survey is a national survey sent to all graduates 15 months after they finish a Higher Education course. It’s the biggest annual social survey in the UK and captures information about your experiences and your current status.

Why complete the survey?

Your valuable response adds to the collective voice of graduates and the results will give current and future students an insight into career destinations and development. Investing a few minutes of your time will help to inspire future students.

How does it work?

The Graduate Outcomes survey is delivered by HESA on behalf NTU.
You can complete the survey on most devices and it only takes around 10 minutes.

You’ll be contacted by either:

  • Email: The survey will be emailed to you from ntu@graduateoutcomes.ac.uk. These emails will contain a link to the online survey.
  • Text messages: You will receive text reminders from ‘GradOutcomes’. These texts will contain a link to the online survey.
  • Phone: If you receive a phone call regarding the survey, it will be from IFF Research. It has been appointed to capture survey responses by phone. They will introduce themselves as calling on behalf of NTU.
