A timetable showing courses at each ceremony can be viewed here.

Which ceremony can I attend?

The ceremony you can attend is determined by when you complete your studies, your school and your course. Each of the ceremonies will last around 90 minutes.

  • If you are graduating with a major/minor or joint (equally balanced) combined degree which has been taught across two schools/fields, you will be able to choose which of the schools/fields you wish to graduate with.

  • Combined awards will be presented as a single group within each school/field, e.g. if you have studied Geography and History, you will graduate with other Combined awards from the field of Culture & Environment, not with BSc Geography or BA History.

  • Creative Arts will be treated the same as a joint combined degree, and you will be able to choose at the time of booking which of the two relevant schools/fields you graduate with (if applicable). Creative Arts degrees will be presented as a single group within each school/field, e.g. if you have studied Art and Music, you will graduate with other Creative Arts awards from the School, not with BA Fine Art or BA Music.

  • All students on a Specialised Education course (also known as the ‘3+1’ of Primary/Secondary pathway), which leads straight into the PGCE course) will graduate with the Institute for Education, regardless of whether they do a combination of subjects within this course.
