What happens now?

If you’re eligible to graduate, you will receive an email from the Data Management Team advising you of this.  You will then need to complete the online Application to Graduate form to register for your Ceremony.  On receipt of this form the Graduation Team will send you further details regarding the Ceremony and regalia hire.

Within the Application to Graduate form you can choose to receive your qualification at the Graduation ceremony or in absentia (you opt to collect or be sent your qualification Certificate by post instead of attending the Ceremony).
