Graduation Ceremonies

Find detailed information regarding your ceremony on our Student e:Vision portal (Student log-in required)

Ceremonies will take place between 8th and 17th September 2020 for students who have been completed with an award by Friday 7th August 2020. Further information will be published in the New Year. 

Please also note that the University is keeping the arrangements for its September 2020 graduation ceremonies under careful review in light of the ongoing global situation regarding the coronavirus (Covid-19).  Graduation is an important part of the UK university experience and in the event that we are advised against holding gatherings such as Graduation, students will be given the opportunity to attend ceremonies at a later date.  We advise those travelling from outside the UK to check the travel advice in their home country before making any travel plans.

Please use the University's Official Appointed Graduation Photography Service

The University has appointed Tempest Photography as its official Graduation Photography service. Please be aware that other photographers may approach you. They may even try to persuade you that they are official. They are not. Should any other supplier approach you offering photography services, please understand that they do so without the approval, authorisation or consent of your University and and the standards of the service they offer cannot be assured. Any commission the University obtains through its contract with Tempest Photography is re-invested into enhancing the student experience. If you choose to take up their alternative service, you risk using a supplier with;

  • no permission to use the University crest
  • No foil-blocking on mounts
  • Limited product range
  • Poor after-sales service
