Together with the University of the Highlands and Islands, we have made the difficult decision to cancel face-to-face graduation, award ceremonies and celebration events during 2021 due to COVID-19.
Graduation and award ceremonies are the highlight of our year. However, our priority is to keep you safe, so it is impossible to plan the events we would usually hold.
We are investigating alternative options and will consult with HISA in order to take into account your views. We are eager to understand your views but would ask that if you would like to share your thoughts and opinions with us on this subject, please do so through your HISA class representative.
We know how hard our students have worked to continue with their studies in these really challenging circumstances. We recognise how disappointing this news will be as these events are an important way to celebrate success with family and friends. Those graduating this year will still receive awards by email and post.
Sadly, this also means we won't hold any celebration events this year for those students who graduated or received an award last year, we are contacting those affected.
We will continue to look for ways we can celebrate together in the future.
