Data protection

Publication of names

The names of graduating students will be printed in the graduation programme which is available to all ticketed guests on the day. If you would like your name removed from this publication, you must advise the Events Office in writing by 1 May 2020. Please email graduation@sheffield.ac.uk giving your full name, student registration number and award title and clearly confirm that you wish to be removed from the programme. It should be noted that if any students have a tuition or tuition-related debt to the University at 19 June 2020, their names will not appear in the programme. Occasionally, we may be advised that a student has completed their studies after the programme has already gone to print and their name will therefore not be included in the programme.

We do not print degree classification in the graduation programme.

Commemorative clothing

The names of graduating students are published on commemorative clothing by the Students' Union. If you would like your name removed from this clothing, please advise the Students' Union by 1 May 2020.
