Don't let debt ruin your day

You cannot purchase tickets to your ceremony while you have any fees or charges owing to the University in relation to your studies. This does not include any non-academic debts.

Please make sure that you clear any outstanding academic debts at least a week before the ticket booking deadline. Once you have cleared the outstanding debt, please wait at least 48 hours before logging back into OSIS to complete the Graduation Task. You can settle your debt by contacting the Debt Recovery team on +44(0)20 8328 7005 or by paying online. However, most library debts are not payable online so please contact the learning resources centres on +44(0)20 8417 3355 or in person before making any payment.

Can't make it?

If you are unable to attend your ceremony, you need to let us know by logging into OSIS.

You can request that your certificate is posted to you after the graduation ceremonies have taken place.
