Graduation 2020

Congratulations on your recent success!

We would like to invite Higher Education and Access students who successfully completed in June 2020 to join us online to celebrate their graduation.  

The ceremonies will not be the traditional graduation ceremonies that we are used too and we cannot replace the special feeling of celebrating with friends and family but we hope that these online events offer the chance to celebrate and acknowledge the amazing achievements of the Class of 2020.  You can still get together with your family in front of the graduation video stream and celebrate your achievements. 

The date of your graduation will depend on the department your course belongs to.

Monday 14th December – Access
Tuesday 15th December – Advanced Technologies (Engineering, Construction and Computing)
Wednesday 16th December – Business & Service Industries (Business, Management, Sport, Science)
Thursday 17th December – Health and Social Care (Health & Social Care, Childcare, Counselling)

Your ceremony will be streamed on the Northern Regional College’s YouTube channel at 6.30pm.

Will I still receive my certificate?

All certificates will be posted. Please note Ulster University students will need to request their certificate to be posted by email and on this email confirm their address. The exams staff will then send their certificate by recorded delivery.

If you have any questions regarding certificates, please contact
