Data Protection

Publication of names

The names of graduating students are published in the graduation programme which is available to all ticketed guests on the day.  If you would like your name removed from the programme, you must advise the Events Team in writing by Wednesday 31 October 2018. 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 publication. It should be noted that if any students have a tuition or tuition-related debt to the University at 14 December 2018, their names will not appear in any of the above. 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.
