Invitations to the November graduation ceremonies will be sent by email, to your university email address and the personal email address held on your record, on Wednesday 30th August 2023.

Booking deadline

If you wish to attend your ceremony, with or without guest graduation tickets, you must have registered your attendance by the following dates:

  •  Friday 22nd September 2023

You must do this even if you have not received confirmation of your final results.

After this date the booking system will be closed and it will NOT be possible for you to attend. Due to the numbers involved through the graduation system it is not possible to process any late requests.

How to book

To book your place, log into ICON and click the ‘My Graduation’ link. Follow the on-screen instructions to check and update your details and request guest graduation tickets.

Please note, if there are any amendments required to the name you wish to appear on your award certificate or should you wish to check the title of your award, please contact the PAd at your campus of study.

You must let us know any amendments that need to be made, possibly in writing, by the booking deadline (see above).

Non attendance

If you do not attend your ceremony you will graduate “in absentia” and your name will appear in the graduation programme but will not be read out.

If you are not attending your ceremony please complete the online booking form on ICON or email the Ceremonies Team. It is not possible to swap your ceremony date and only in exceptional circumstances will a request to defer a ceremony to the following year be considered. If you do wish to apply for a deferral, email the Ceremonies Team, before the ceremony to which you've been invited, with an outline of the reasons for making the request.
