It’s graduation season and this year, that doesn’t quite mean the same as it normally does.

The pandemic has meant that ceremonies and celebrations across the world have had to be put on hold, and graduates are left having to celebrate in their own homes.

This year, even though you may not be attending your graduation ceremony, you can still show the world that you are now a graduate with your graduation photo.

The graduates of 2020 have taken to Instagram to celebrate their achievements over the past few years, and although a virtual celebration may not be what you expected, it can still be fun.

You only get one graduation, so make it count! Your caption means a lot, this is your time to show off all your hard work so we’ve compiled a list of our favourite Instagram captions so yours can be unique and fun.
