Ensure your name and contact details are correct and up to date
Check with your home College to ensure that the following details are correct on the University’s enrolment database:
- Full name
Your testamur (degree certificate or diploma) will show your full legal name as it is entered in the University’s enrolment database (Paradigm). See Graduation academic documents for information about name change requests.
- Email and postal addresses
These addresses are needed for important graduation correspondence. If your details change between now and the graduation date, you need to advise us immediately. You will be asked to complete a Personal Details Amendment Form.
You must also check to ensure any library fines and outstanding loans are resolved.
What happens next?
Closer to the ceremony date, you will receive further information (including an invitation to confirm your attendance or absence) at your chosen ceremony. If you have opted to attend, the invitation will include details and instructions for regalia hire/purchase, guest tickets, photography and venue/arrival details for the ceremony day. You can expect to receive this email about three weeks prior to the ceremony date.
If you have selected to graduate in absentia, you will not need to take any further action.
Graduation Ceremonies during COVID-19
The University’s response to the COVID-19 crisis is consistently guided by two priorities: to safeguard the health of our members and the general public, and to ensure continuity of our educational mission especially for students.
Graduation ceremonies are occasions where large groups of people gather together to celebrate the success of students. Attendance of graduating students and their guests will be determined in the weeks prior to each upcoming graduation ceremony, depending on any restrictions on public gatherings that may be in place.
What if I want to defer my graduation to a future year?
You can apply to defer your graduation to a future graduation season. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline given above if you wish to request to defer your graduation.
Can I change my mind about which ceremony I will graduate at?
We encourage you to fully consider the ceremony options (noting dates and locations) before submitting your selection here. However, if your situation changes, it is possible to request a change up to 21 days prior to the ceremony date you have selected. Please email email@example.com if you wish to apply to change your selected ceremony date.
If you need some help to select a ceremony, or you have some questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information about University Graduation Ceremonies (including regalia information) can be found on the University’s website.
