Celebrating the Class of 2020

To our incredible class of 2020 graduates: congratulations! 

We know that things are sadly quite different this year and that you aren’t able to celebrate at a degree ceremony as planned. We are working hard to reorganise your degree ceremonies and look forward to a time in the future when we can come together to properly celebrate your achievements in person. We will share more details as soon as we possibly can – thank you for being so patient. 

In the meantime, we are inviting you to join us on social media from 14th – 18th September for a week of #OUfamily celebrations and surprises. Here’s a taste of what you can look forward to:

  • Special messages from the OU family (including some famous faces!)
  • Inspiring stories from your fellow students
  • The chance to share your story, celebrate your graduating class and thank the friends and family who have helped you get here
  • Advice from the Careers and Alumni team to help you take those next steps
  • Competitions and more

We hope you’ll join in by sharing your story, photos and videos, while congratulating your fellow graduating class. If you haven’t already had an at home graduation, this is the perfect time to do one and we would love to see what you get up to! There will be some signs that you can use on social media or print out at home that you might like to use. 

Please follow along by using #OUfamily. You can find us on: 





We look forward to a week of celebrations very soon!
