  • Your award must be agreed.
    For all undergraduates who are due to graduate in July 2018, your award must be agreed by Wednesday 27 June 2018 in order for you to attend your ceremony. If you do not have your award agreed by this date, you'll be sent information from your faculty about the next steps you should take, and you will not be able to attend your ceremony. If you have a query about your results, you need to contact your faculty directly. The Graduations team will not be able to help you.

The following needs to apply in order for you to be eligible to attend your ceremony.

What happens to my booking if I don't achieve my award in time for my ceremony?

If you fail to achieve your award in time for your ceremony:

  • You will be notified by email that your booking has been cancelled approximately two weeks before your ceremony and you will not be able to attend.
  • A refund will be automatically processed (if necessary) within 25 days of receiving the email.

Please note that refunds will be processed back onto the original card used to make the payment.

If you have already ordered your gown but can no longer attend the ceremony, see how to get a refund from our gowning suppliers, Ede & Ravenscroft.
