Postgraduate research degree students should note that their full examination process and submission of hardbound thesis must be complete, in order for them to appear on a pass list and be eligible to attend Congregation.
Research students should seek advice from their School or Research Student Support Team in King's Gate Building to find out whether they are likely to appear on a pass list in time for the ceremony.
If you are a student and you wish to request an invitation letter to your ceremony in order to support a visa application for either yourself or your friends and family, please visit our Visa page.
You can always cancel your attendance nearer the time, if it turns out that you cannot attend, for whatever reason.
If you are unable to attend, you can choose to defer until a future date. Ceremonies are usually held in July and December of each year. Please indicate your preference when completing your Congregation application form.
Graduates may only defer their graduation ceremony for up to 18 months after they pass their course.
