Student Life

As we end this academic year in these most unprecedented of times due to the impact of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 UCEN Manchester graduation ceremony, which was due to take place in November.

This is not a decision that we have taken lightly but the safety of our students and colleagues is our upmost priority. 

Graduation reflects a major personal achievement for our students and we will still mark their academic success with your help while also offering our graduates the chance to attend our 2021 graduation.

Please email with any queries.

Graduation is a unique occasion, marking a watershed moment in your life and ushering in an exciting new era. As you prepare to get started on the next stage of your career, graduation offers the chance to celebrate your hard work and achievements to date with your friends, family, and fellow graduates.

Keep up to date on booking and planning your Graduation on this page.

Every year, our eagerly-anticipated ceremony is held at one of Manchester’s many prestigious venues, where you can put on your full academic dress and make lifelong memories in the company of your nearest and dearest. This year we'll be hosting our Graduation Ceremony at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.
