Graduation checklist

Please use the checklist below:

  • It is essential in many cases to apply to graduate before you receive formal notification of your results.  However, if you do not receive notification of your award by the 7 June 2024 23:59 UK Time, 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. 
  • Applications will open in the Spring and close on the 17 May 2024.  Late applications will not be accepted.
  • Check the date and time of your graduation ceremony and ensure that you arrive at the arrival time stated.
  • Clear any outstanding debt with the University by the 10 May 2024.
  • Please ensure you hire your gown and hood.  Further information is available on our 'Hire your gown' webpage. You will not be permitted to graduate in person or be presented to the Chancellor/ Vice-Chancellor without one.
  • A professional photographer will be available with a number of photographic studios to take individual or family photographs. We suggest you come along for your photos before your ceremony if possible, or after the reception.
  • Carefully read our web page 'On the day' for further information about what happens on the day of your ceremony.
  • Find out what Alumni can offer you after graduation.
  • You can still use the Careers and Graduate Futures Service to get advice and help you with your job hunting for up to two years after graduating.
  • Are you aware of the Graduate Outcomes Survey? Find out more!
  • Return all library books prior to the ceremony.
