Subject to availability we will accept late applications which will be processed on a first come first served basis. Students will be allocated a ceremony where there is availability, this could mean you will be presented with students from a different faculty.
If you have not applied please contact the Student Centre Events team urgently at firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice.
I have just finished my Masters degree/Research degree, when will my graduation ceremony be?
UCL holds graduation ceremonies once a year. If you have just been awarded your degree or will be awarded in June or September 2013 you will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony in 2014. We will write to eligible students in January 2014 using the contact details taken from their student record. It is important for you to keep your contact details up to date on PORTICO.
If you are not attending
If you wish to defer your attendance to the 2014 Graduation Ceremonies please complete the Defer Request form by 1 October 2013.
How will I get my degree certificate?
We do not present degree certificates at graduation ceremonies. Your certificate will be posted to you. Please refer to the My Degree page for more information.
I would still like to have my photograph taken in academic dress, how can I arrange this?
We hold Non-ceremony Photography Sessions once a term where you can have professional photographs taken in academic dress, and with friends and family. Please refer to our photography page for more information.
Once you have applied
All graduands who have successfully applied for tickets will receive a confirmation letter and email confirming their ceremony time and date and their ticket allocations, along with more information about the ceremony. This confirmation correspondence is being sent now. We do not advise you or your guests to make travel or accommodation arrangements until you receive your confirmation from us. Please refer to our homepage for further information.
Tickets are not posted to students, they are collected on the day of
your ceremony when you register. We will send more information about
ticket collection in June.
All future communications will be sent via email and it is therefore essential that you keep your ‘contact' email address up to date on your student (PORTICO) record.
