Your graduation

Your graduation ceremony marks the culmination of all your hard work as you are formally presented with your certificates and awards.

The ceremony is a celebration of all of our graduating students’ achievements and we aim to make it an unforgettable day for you and your family.

Graduation ceremonies are held in the magnificent Stadium of Light. Summer ceremonies take place outside in the West Stand, while winter ceremonies are a more intimate affair, taking place indoors inside one of the ground’s many suites.

All ceremonies are presided over by the University Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor. They follow the procession party out at the start of each ceremony and personally congratulate every graduation student on the stage.

Once you graduate you automatically become a member of the University’s Alumni Association and will have access to a whole range of benefits and services. Join our online community.

Ceremonies

From 30 November we will recognise the winter Class of 2022 with a series of special ceremonies at the Stadium of Light across three days for our graduates, their friends and family.
