Graduation 2021

Graduation 2021

We’re delighted to announce that our 2021 Graduation ceremony is set to take place on Friday 10th September! This ceremony will not only celebrate the success of the class of 2021 but also includes our class of 2020, who unfortunately missed out on a ceremony last year. 

Heart of Worcestershire College Graduation Ceremony which will take place in the magnificent setting of Worcester Cathedral on Friday 10th September 2021 at 12 noon. 

Despite the current roadmap stating that all restrictions will be lifted in time for 10th September, I’m sure you can appreciate that we as a college, alongside Worcester Cathedral, may still have to make changes to our current plans and that there may be additional health and safety guidelines in place to ensure the safety of you and our staff.

With that in mind, at this point in time each student is able to bring up to one guest to the Ceremony. Graduands will not be required to pay for their ticket however guest tickets will be available to purchase for £15 per guest. Further information regarding ticketing is included below and if you require any disabled persons provision, please convey this information with your ticket order. 

In order for us to make sure that appropriate seating is available, please order your tickets before Friday 30th July 2021. Please note that tickets are currently available on a first come first served basis.

Details for the hire of graduation gowns, photographic services and procedures for the day are also below. Please ensure you purchase these prior to the ceremony as you will be unable to purchase or change these on the day, due to current restrictions.

Please note: when booking photography and gowns, students must deal directly with Ede & Ravenscroft and not the College.

More information on the ceremony is included below. Any changes to the ceremony will also be communicated to students.


This year we will be offering graduates the opportunity to purchase tickets for the ceremony via the Ede & Ravenscroft website along with gown hire and photography. Due to current restrictions surrounding Covid-19, this service will allow you to purchase one guest ticket per student. In order for us to make sure that appropriate seating is available, please order your tickets before Friday 30th July 2021.
