Graduation

Information for students who are due to graduate is available on our website. If your question isn’t answered there, please search the below FAQs.

Answer:

Please contact the graduation team if you were expecting an invitation for Winter 2021 but haven't received one by 12 November.

Answer:

No. With all students graduating in absentia, we will register you for graduation on your behalf. Please note that we will be contacting you by email ahead of graduation to ensure your details are correct. If you believe that you should be graduating in Winter 2021 but haven’t received an email from us by 12 November, then please do get in touch with us.

You must ensure that your name, home address and personal email address details on MyNottingham are correct by Wednesday 24 November at the latest to ensure we have the correct details to send your certificate. Please also ensure you have paid all fees by 24 November to be eligible to graduate.

Answer:

No. Due to the current exceptional circumstances, it is not possible for us to hold an official graduation ceremony. You will therefore graduate this summer as planned, but all students will graduate in absentia. By doing this, we are ensuring that you will still receive your degree certificate in good time and you will also be invited to a special ceremony hosted at the University, when it is safe to do so. If not being able to defer your graduation would have financial implications for you (for instance if you are an intercalating student), then please email us so we can review your individual situation.  

Answer:

Yes. We will confer your award in Winter 2021 so that you can receive your certificate and you will be invited back to our rescheduled ceremonies in 2022.  

 

Answer:

Yes. If you pass your final exams and assessments.

The difference this year is that you will graduate in absentia, so without the ceremony. This is due to the restrictions in place because of Covid-19. Please be assured that you will have an opportunity to attend a rescheduled graduation ceremony in 2022.  

Answer:

You can request a confirmation of student status letter from the online store.

Answer:

We will provide graduating students with an e-certificate as well as the hard copy. An email from PremierCert+ will be sent to graduates following graduation from which you can access your documents.

Answer:

Yes, you can also graduate in absentia (without a ceremony) in March or October, referred to as inter-ceremony graduation. If you choose to do this, you won't be able to attend a ceremony in person. If you want to attend a ceremony, you'll have to graduate in the usual way and wait for your certificate.

If you need to receive your certificate early and want to apply for inter-ceremony graduation, please complete the online application form

You'll need to get this back to us by 20 February for March graduation or 20 September for October graduation. Once you have submitted the form you will be able to read a message on your screen to confirm that the form has been submitted. There is no need for you to submit the form more than once.

After the deadline your application will go through a series of checks including verification that you have completed your course and a debt check. Before the official conferral date, you will receive an email advising you if you are eligible for inter-ceremony graduation or not. Providing you are eligible your certificate will be posted out after the conferral date.

Answer:

The University is unable to reimburse you for any travel or accommodation you may have booked. Please contact your travel provider or insurer directly for support.   

Answer:

Graduates from Winter 2021 will receive both electronic and hard copy versions of certificates and transcripts. Electronic versions are shared via email linking to an online portal called PremierCert. Hard copy documents will be sent out via Royal Mail following graduation.
