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 but haven't received one.

Answer:

No, please do complete registration before the deadline, otherwise we can't guarantee there will be tickets available for your guests.

Answer:

You're expected to graduate at the ceremony following the successful completion of your course. If you wish to attend a ceremony but are unavailable, please log into MyNottingham in order to defer your graduation. You can defer up to 3 weeks before graduation.

You won't be given your certificate until you actually attend a ceremony if you choose to do this. You can instead choose to graduate in absentia (without a ceremony) and get your certificate posted to you, but you won't be able to attend a ceremony in future.

Answer:

Arrive two hours before your ceremony start time, and make sure you're gowned and seated half an hour before it starts. Ceremonies last for approximately one hour. For a schedule of the day please refer to "What time should I arrive?"

 

Answer:

Yes, photography is available before and after each ceremony from Tempest Photography. There is no need to pre-book this service.

You can also buy a DVD of your ceremony.

Answer:

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

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 application form and return via email to graduation@nottingham.ac.uk. You'll need to get this back to us by 20 February for March graduation or 20 September for October graduation. Once you have returned your form you will receive a notification email advising you that your form has been received. Your application will then go through a series of checks including verification that you have completed your course and a debt check. Shortly after the application deadline, 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 in October.
