Class of 2021: This is not goodbye

So your degree with us will be coming to an end in a few months time. You might be thinking that it's the end of your time with Herts, but this is just the start of your graduate journey with us. You will always be a part of our Herts community and we will continue to support you whatever you decide to do next.

We’ve created this 6-step guide to help you understand how we can keep supporting you now and throughout your future.

1. The official end of your degree

Firstly, there are a few things you need to sort out before you fully complete your course. This includes the disposal of your ID card, knowing what to do with books you have on loan from the LRC, and finalising your student finances. You can read more about this on Ask Herts. Do check through the list and make sure you have everything sorted so we can issue you with your final degree certificate. Find out more about receiving your certificate on our website.

2. Hungry for more?

If you have an appetite for more study there are lots more courses that Herts has on offer. If you have just finished your undergraduate degree, how about studying for a Masters? As a Herts graduate you are entitled to a 20% postgraduate fee discount for many of our course,

And of course, if you have just finished your Masters, there is the option to study for a doctorate with our Doctoral College.
