Student Life

Graduation is a unique occasion, marking a watershed moment in your life and ushering in an exciting new era. As you prepare to get started on the next stage of your career, graduation offers the chance to celebrate your hard work and achievements to date with your friends, family, and fellow graduates.

Every year, our eagerly-anticipated ceremony is held at one of Manchester’s many prestigious venues, where you can put on your full academic dress and make lifelong memories in the company of your nearest and dearest.

You are eligible to register for the graduation event if you have finished your studies, or are in the process of doing so, during this current academic year.

If you are required to go through re-assessment, you will be invited to register for Graduation 2019 in September upon the successful completion of your studies.

We’ll inform you about everything you need to know about your graduation, including how to register, the all-important cap and gown hire, photography and a breakdown guide to graduation.
