COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Updated return to campus 2021

Due to the recent governmental recommendations in relation to Covid-19 and social distancing the Graduation ceremonies for Summer 2020 will be postponed until further notice. All graduating students will be notified as soon as we have new dates.


Information about graduation ceremonies is normally sent out before results are published and the receipt of graduation information does not mean that you are eligible to graduate.

However, please don't wait until you receive your results before booking your place.

Eligibility to graduate

To be eligible to attend the graduation ceremony you must have:

1) successfully completed your course and been awarded.

  • Nursing students only - You must have completed all placement hours by Friday 28 September 2018(for November 2018 ceremonies). If you are going to struggle to meet this deadline, please contact your Programme Leader well in advance of this date.

2) paid all outstanding academic fees to the university.

  • All fees must be paid by 15th May 2020 (for July 2020 ceremonies).
  • If you make payment after this date, it may still be possible for you to attend graduation but your name may not appear in the programme.
  • To pay money, or if you are unsure whether you owe any money, please contact Accounts Receivable Team.

Exit awards

Students who do not successfully complete sufficient credit or professional components for their intended award may attend graduation for a lesser exit award, such as:

  • Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE)
  • Bachelor of Arts/Science/Laws/Engineering (BA/BSc/LLB/BEng) (Ordinary)
  • Postgraduate Certificate (PgC)
  • Postgraduate Diploma (PgD)

Please note there is no award ceremony for a Certificate of Achievement (CertHE).
