We’re pleased to announce that the University of Hull hosted in-person graduation ceremonies in 2022 – our first since the beginning of the pandemic. 

Our classes of 2021 and 2022 were invited to join us to celebrate their accomplishments and walk the stage. The ceremonies were held at the Bonus Hall Arena in Hull.

I'm Becky Huxley-Binns, the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education) at the University of Hull. Graduation is the pinnacle. It's the biggest celebration that we have as all of our students' achievements. And it's exciting and it's also a threshold to the next part of their life, whatever they want to do. There's great joy, this great excitement, and there's a huge sense of celebration. It is so exciting because the online students have been at a distance from each other. And finally to be able to come together and meet people in person, but also to be able to reflect on what they've achieved over the period of the Masters. It's something very, very special indeed. We've worked very, very hard to make sure that students studying online still have a sense of community, which is quite difficult to do. But having the webinars and having chat rooms and being able to discuss with each other, I think Hull Online is probably the best online community of students I've ever seen. If you're thinking about studying online, do your research. Find out what all the modules are when they take place. If you need to take a break in studies. You can do that. Of course you can. But find out what you're letting yourself in for. Then it's time management, dedicating that time to yourself, to your own learning over a period of time and really committing to it. It's very different to on campus because you do get a sense of community studying online, but you need to be prepared for the head down working at it where you can't get a friend on campus to drag you to the library and say, finish your dissertation. So a lot of this needs to be internally motivated. And you'll need a lot of staying power to see the course. But there's something so rewarding about coming to a graduation at the end of it and saying, I did that.

"My experience with the Hull online Masters has helped with my specific skills. I loved the challenge of my degree, so when I graduated I felt a great sense of accomplishment."

Mike McMaster, MA Creative Writing graduate
