Class of 2020

What is the class of 2020 yearbook?

We are launching a virtual yearbook – a collection of memories just for you - to celebrate the class of 2020. 

The yearbook will be a feed of communication between students and between students and school staff.  

We will keep the feed open until we can hold your rearranged graduation ceremonies. Keep checking back to find out what ongoing support the university can offer you and what jobs are being advertised. 

Within the yearbook there will be a main class of 2020 group and then a class of 2020 group for each academic school. 

How do I access the class of 2020 yearbook?

Students will be invited to sign up to the yearbook via university communications. 

  • Open Beckett Connect at 

  • Register as class of 2020 

  • Click on Groups in the menu bar 

  • Click on class of 2020 

  • Post in the yearbook. Over the next few weeks, we want you to share messages, images and videos of your time at Leeds Beckett University. 

Will my graduation take place?

We have taken the difficult decision to postpone the graduation ceremonies scheduled for July to protect the health and wellbeing our students, their families, and our colleagues. Public Health England have advised that social distancing measures are likely to be in force for the next few months and that it would be unsafe to hold large events such as graduation. 

We know how important graduation is to you and to your family so want to reassure you that this is a postponement and not a cancellation. We will reschedule the ceremonies as soon as we have confidence that they can go ahead safely and in keeping with the advice from the government and Public Health England.

I am an undergraduate final year, postgraduate or research student, will I be able to graduate?

Yes, it is important to note that there is a difference between graduating (being awarded your degree) and the graduation ceremony (the celebration event). You will still graduate when the Board of Examiners awards your degree.

Will I receive my certificate?

All eligible students who complete their degree requirements will still become graduates of Leeds Beckett University. We will send your certificate to your home address so please make sure that your address is correct and up to date on MyBeckett. If you are unable to access your account, please contact the events team.
