Reading Time: 3 minutes

Are you graduating this summer? Registration for our July graduation ceremonies is now open, and there’s a couple of things you need to complete to make sure you’re able to attend:

1. Make sure you’re eligible to graduate

To be awarded your degree and attend graduation, there are some steps you must take:

Have a published degree result on your student record

To graduate and have your name included in the graduation programme, you must have a published result. This means there must be a full completion of your award status on your student record by Monday, 3 July 2023.

N.B. Postgraduate Research Students (PGR) identified as potentially eligible to graduate will all receive invitations to the graduation ceremony. However, a PGR must have full completion of their award status (i.e. have been issued with the final award confirmation letter) by the Monday, 3 July 2023 deadline in order to graduate and have their name included in the graduation programme. If you anticipate receiving your award letter by the above deadline, we would advise you to register to attend/not attend.

Clear any outstanding tuition fee debt

It is our policy that degrees will not be awarded to anyone who has a tuition fee debt outstanding to the University. If you owe tuition fee debts to the University, these must be settled by Monday, 3 July 2023. If you settle any debt after this date, your name will not appear in the digital programme. If you are unsure what debts you owe to the University, email the Credit Control Team on as soon as possible.

2. Confirm your personal details

You must check and confirm your personal information in the Student System by Monday, 3 July 2023.

You can view your full name when you login to register your choice to attend or not attend the ceremony through My Manchester, this name will be printed on your degree certificate. We also need your correct home address to send you your certificate. 

You might also need to contact your School about updating your name or other details. Details not updated on or before Monday, 3 July 2023 could mean that you will need to purchase a replacement degree certificate.
