Checklist and FAQs
Can I defer my graduation?
Any final year students who were expected to attend the July 2020 and December 2020 ceremonies do not need to defer their attendance. Your student record details, along with the emails you use to register for the class of 2020 celebration, will be used to contact you when your ceremony is rescheduled. You not need to alert us of your intention to attend your rescheduled ceremony at this point.
I have already informed you of the deferral of my graduation ceremony. What should I do?
If you have deferred your attendance to a graduation ceremony in 2020 we are unable to release the schedule for upcoming ceremonies at present due to the uncertainty surrounding the covid-19 pandemic. The health, welfare and safety of students, staff and visitors is our top priority and we are continuing to follow all government advice. We will update students who have deferred their attendance to 2020 ceremonies when the summer 2020 ceremonies have been rescheduled.
When are physical ceremonies happening?
We are unable to release these at present due to the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. The health, welfare and safety of students, staff and visitors is our top priority and we are continuing to follow all government advice. Any students expecting to graduate this year will get an award.
Will I receive my degree certificate?
For information about degree certificates please visit this page here or contact the student enquiry centre.
I am an international student, will I be able to attend my physical graduation ceremony?
We understand the concerns of our international students who may face difficulties in attending rescheduled graduation ceremonies.
We are working with our Advice and Counselling service to ensure that students whose Tier 4 visas have expired by the time of their graduation ceremony receive as much advice and guidance as possible.
*Please note that attendance at a graduation ceremony is not confirmation of an award, and that students with awards will still receive their award documentation and degree certificates as usual.
