Graduating in absentia
Applying to Graduate
If you do not wish to attend a ceremony, you may elect to graduate in absentia.
It is essential in many cases to apply to graduate before you receive formal notification of your results. However, if you have made an application but do not subsequently receive an award decision you will not be eligible to graduate.
If you do not receive notification of your award (via online results, assessment results letter or letter of award) by Friday 12 June 2020, you will not graduate this Summer. Your application will automatically become void and you will be refunded for any monies paid. This also applies to applications to graduate in absentia.
Receiving your certificate
Your certificate can either be mailed to you by UK Signed for, International Signed for or via DHL courier delivery which incurs an additional charge. You may also opt to collect your certificate from one of our campuses. Please note if you miss the deadline or if you were eligible to recieve your award in 2019 or earlier, this option is not available.
We have been experiencing problems with delivery to countries with unreliable postal services. In these cases we do recommend using DHL however, this is not mandatory.
Please allow 4-6 weeks from your graduation date for delivery.
If you are applying to graduate in absentia after your graduation date please allow 4-6 weeks from the deadline date (last day on the month you have applied in) for delivery of your certificate.
