14 September 2020, Symphony Hall Birmingham

To acknowledge the achievements of successful Diploma candidates NEBOSH holds an annual Graduation & Awards Ceremony incorporating our best candidates' presentation. 

Your graduation recognises and celebrates the high academic standard you have achieved. Graduation days are the most important occasion in the NEBOSH calendar and we want to ensure that it is a special occasion for you and your guests to enjoy.

View and download the NEBOSH Graduation Guide below for more information on tickets and what to expect on the day. 

Update COV-19 

NEBOSH are closely monitoring the advice being given by the World Health Organisation, Public Health England and Local Governments in relation to COVID-19.

We are considering how the advice being given affects our events including the NEBOSH Graduation and Awards Ceremony, which is due to take place in Birmingham on Monday 14 September.  

The venue for the NEBOSH graduation – the Symphony Hall -  is currently closed and will be for the foreseeable future. 

No decision has been made yet about whether the Ceremony can go ahead in September as planned, but we strongly advise Diplomates to delay making travel plans for now and consider your governments advice on travel.

We will keep you informed of our thinking and if the Ceremony doesn’t go ahead in September please be assured that this will be a postponement rather than a cancellation.  Diplomates will not miss the opportunity to graduate and we will reschedule the event when it is safe to do so.

Our primary focus remains to protect the health of our community. We hope that you all keep safe at this difficult time.
