There are many reasons why you may choose not to or be unable to attend a graduation ceremony.
If you are not planning or unable to attend your graduation ceremony, you can either:
- graduate in absentia and receive your certificate and transcripts in the post and online following your graduation
- defer your graduation until a later date
There is also an option for students in certain specific circumstances and courses to graduate earlier via an Inter-ceremony graduation.
