Although your studying takes place 100% online, you don’t miss out on the opportunity to celebrate alongside friends and family. 

Every year we hold our graduation at the University of Essex Colchester campus. This prestigious day is an opportunity to recognise the extraordinary hard work you’ve put in over the past few months and years. Our graduates travel from around the world to attend their ceremony and receive their University of Essex certificate.

You’ll have the opportunity to meet your fellow classmates, as well as the staff who’ve supported you throughout your journey with us.

We were thrilled to resume our in-person graduation celebrations this year at the University of Essex Colchester campus! We welcomed our 2020, 2021 and 2022 graduates to our Spring and Summer ceremonies to celebrate their impressive achievements.



Previous graduations

Our students have been attending graduation on campus since 2013 and it’s always been a fantastic day for all staff and students involved.
