Congratulations to the Sussex Class of 2020

    Sanjeev Bhaskar here, your Chancellor.

    Massive congratulations on your results, really well done. Whilst this summer’s ceremonies have been postponed, I look forward to seeing you at your graduation ceremony next year.

    Now this is Josh. Hello Josh! He’s a second-year student and he’s also a digital media guru. He’s going to be showing you this print-off Sussex Grad at Home DIY kit.

    Remember that famous concrete sign as you walk into campus? Well now you can make your own! Cut around the dotted line and fold along the creases. Now glue the edges and ta-dah! Yes, it’s smaller than the real one, but it’s also much easier to carry.

    I would love to attend your home ceremony if you’ll invite me! Cut along the edges, easy round the head there Josh. Possibly even better than the real thing. You can tag me @tvsanjeev on Instagram or Twitter.

    A Sussex celebration wouldn’t be right without seagulls. There, it’s like being on campus again. And some bunting, because who doesn’t love bunting? Find anything that approximates to a gown and cap and voila!

    Be as creative and fun as I know you Sussex students are. Tag @sussexuni and use the hashtag #SussexGradAtHome or you can email your videos or pics to

    We’ll be sharing your home ceremonies throughout ‘Graduation week’ starting on July 20th. If you don’t have a printer don’t worry. From July 20th there will be some exciting graduation filters on Instagram. See you soon!

Use our Sussex Grad at Home kit [PDF, 1.5 MB] to bring some of that Sussex spirit to your living room.
