Research graduates

Welcome to the graduation web pages.

The aim of these pages is to provide you with all the information you require for your ceremony. Graduation is a special celebration and we hope that your ceremony will be a fitting end to an enjoyable time spent studying at the University.

In Absentia Conferments

Although most students complete their course of study and have their degree conferred at a degree ceremony immediately following the award, some students will have their degree awarded at a time when no degree ceremonies are scheduled to take place. The University, therefore, holds in absentia ceremonies to enable students who complete their studies outside the graduation ceremony periods, to have their degree conferred and, therefore, receive their degree certificate without having to wait until the next degree ceremony.
