Awards and Ceremonies


The Awards & Ceremonies team assist graduands in ensuring their "big day" is a memorable one, as well as helping alumni with queries relating to replacement certificates and authorised certificate copies.

The University holds 22 Graduation ceremonies annually; 14 in July and 8 in January.



In line with government advice the Awards and Ceremonies Team are working at home until further notice. During this time we do not have access to printing or postage facilities. As such, we have suspended our authorised certificate copy and replacement certificate services. We appreciate your understanding and if there is anything equivalent we can provide, via email, do not hesitate to get in touch via

The University is monitoring the ongoing situation with regard to COVID-19 and the July 2020 degree ceremonies. We are currently expecting ceremonies to take place as planned, but we will be guided by Public Health England when making a final decision.

Please note that we remain unable to send certificates via courier to Wuhan/Hubei Province following the January ceremonies and we will send these certificates as soon as we are able to do so.

I'd like to find out more about:
  • Degree ceremonies (when/where are they held, how do I register, how do I order my gown)
  • Award certificates (when should I expect to receive my certificate, how do I order a replacement certificate or obtain authorised certificate copies)
