Sussex Grad At Home: Celebrating our Class of 2020

Our Sussex Grad at Home celebrations took place this week across social media and our website, with a range of videos and special messages for our Class of 2020. 

Highlights included:

Our bespoke graduation Instagram filters have been used over 5,000 times, with more than 1,300 students sharing their VR (Virtual Reality) graduation pictures to friends and family. If you haven’t already, take a look at the graduation filters on our Instagram profile and join in the fun. 

Our final video, entitled ‘A Class like no other’, was released this morning (Friday 24 July) and you can watch it online.

We know nothing can replace the real thing, but it has been heartening to see so many students celebrating their achievements this week. Below is a selection of pictures students have been sharing on Twitter. 

Graduation certificates have been posted, and students have received a letter from the Vice-Chancellor alongside a commemorative Class of 2020 print. 

Students will have the opportunity to graduate in person in 2021; more information will be shared about this as soon as we are able to provide it.
