Winter Graduation (December 2018) for PG students of the SOTON Business School

This petition had 119 supporters

Hi guys! As you might be aware graduation ceremonies for all the postgraduate Business school, will be held in July 2019, which is more than 6 months after we'll finish our course (September 2018). Therefore we would like to bring forward the graduation ceremony to December 2018 for the Winter Graduation ceremonies. Here are a few points :

  • Graduation ceremony is very important in the student's life, and to share it with family and friends, this is why it is in everybody's interest to attend the ceremony
  •  Indeed a large majority of the students require a visa to come to the UK, and their visa would have already expired for many months in July 2019. Moreover, it's a big cost to come back to the UK to attend the Graduation ceremony.
  •  This is why it'd be more clever to hold the Graduation ceremonies within the period determined by their student visa (until Jan 2019 for many of them)
  • Additionally, we are sure that if students are sure to attend their graduation ceremony this will bring more motivation and a better satisfaction
  • Indeed, an excellent student satisfaction adds value to the university's reputation, and therefore would potentially attract more prospective students.

Therefore, we count on you to share this petition with students of your course. The more we get signatures the more we would be taken seriously. The faster we have a lot of signatures, the faster it'll be to organise everything.

When signing please state your 1st name and surname, and the name of your course.

We count on you.

Thank in advance for your signature,
