Further details will be published shortly on our website and via the normal communication channels detailing the allocation of ceremonies and how to book. If you have any questions in the meantime, please get in touch with the Student Lifecycle Team:


  • Hi,

    When can we find out which date we are welcomed to attend? I graduated in June of 2021 BSc Finance. Thanks


  • The same dates have been on the website since November. When will we be informed of which date for which course? I was invited to the ceremony 10 days before it took place, not allowing me enough time to make arrangements for my family’s visit coming from abroad. I would like to book the plane tickets asap, but cant buy them for May AND June AND August..

    • Hi Barbara,

      Thanks for getting in touch. I completely understand, and thank you very much for your patience with this. Please get in touch with the Student Lifecycle Team ( with your questions around graduation, and they can answer your queries around the dates.

      Best wishes,

  • Hello,

    I have the same concerns as Barbara and Bora. Whenever I’ve tried to reach out to the Student Lifecycle team in the past, they’ve always deferred me to the website. If the dates are already set, how come we don’t know which school’s ceremony is on which date? I’m traveling from very far and it would be good to know in advance when the dates are. If we won’t find out until ten days before, I feel like that puts international students at a big disadvantage (which 75% of my cohort was international). If someone could please kindly respond it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  • Hello there, I am a PhD alumni who received their diploma in 2020. I was informed that I would be able to attend one of the July dates (20th, 21st or 22nd of July). I think this is because I currently live in the United States for work. Does this still apply to me following this update?

    • Hi Edward,

      Thanks for your message, and congrats on the PhD! Please get in touch with the Student Lifecycle Team ( about this; they should be able to answer your query.

      Best wishes
