Final year degree students will be provided with an electronic registration portal, accessible from QSIS provided a valid degree result has been published against your course. Please follow the navigation below to complete Graduation registration:
Self Service > Degree Progress/Graduation > Register for Graduation
This will take you into a page called “My Ceremony.”
Please complete the questions and then submit the details you have entered. Students with any Negative Service Indicators (suspensions) will not be able to register until the matter is resolved.
Once you have completed registration for Graduation, you must print out the Graduation Reference Page (link available after registration). This contains essential information regarding your Graduation. You will not be able to collect your gown without producing this page showing full payment.
Students who have a suspension on their account will not be able to register until the matter is resolved. If you have a suspension on your account you must contact the Graduation Helpline on 02890973223 or email@example.com as soon as possible.
Each graduand has the opportunity to purchase up to three guest tickets and four garden party tickets. Graduands will be notified if there are opportunities for additional tickets.
Graduands do not require a ticket to gain entry to the ceremony but will require a ticket for the garden party.
The reference page opens as a PDF document. You will need to enable pop up windows on your browser to see this document.
