How to Register for Graduation

If you're eligible to attend the December 2019 ceremonies, we'll send you an invitation by email in September. You must complete the booking form by Monday 23 September (even if you have not received your results yet).

If you submit the booking form by the deadline you will be guaranteed a graduate ticket and up to two guest tickets free of charge. Only graduands who wish to participate in the ceremony are able to book tickets. Graduate and guest tickets are not transferable.

If, after you have booked, you find you are unable to attend the ceremony, please inform the Congregations Team as soon as possible.

Postgraduate Research Students

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 expect to complete your degree before Wednesday 13 November 2019 and may be interested in attending a ceremony this Winter, please sign up to the Mailing List:

Visa Applications

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.

Cancelling attendance

You can always cancel your attendance nearer the time, if it turns out that you cannot attend, for whatever reason. 

Deferred attendance

If you are unable to attend, you can choose to delay your ceremony until a future date. Ceremonies are usually held in July and December of each year. Please indicate your preference when completing the application form.

Graduates can only delay their graduation ceremony once, to the next set of ceremonies.
