  • November (Singapore Ceremonies). These ceremonies are for students who have studied at Newcastle University International Singapore.
  • November (NUMed Ceremony in Malaysia). This ceremony is for students who have studied at Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia.
  • November (NU London Ceremony). This ceremony is for students who have studied at Newcastle University London
  • December (Newcastle Winter ceremonies). This is the main Congregations period for students who complete awards in September-November. Most students at December ceremonies attend for postgraduate awards, but students with undergraduate awards may also attend.
