Graduation is subject to successful completion of your programme by the end of June 2020. Failure to complete your degree or incur a retake/resit of an exam/module or if you have any incomplete modules, will result in your booking being cancelled.
I am still waiting for my award, am I eligible to attend the Graduation Ceremonies?
Yes, you are able to register for your ceremony pending your award. However, if you are a postgraduate student and have failed your dissertation/consultancy project you run the risk of delaying your eligibility to graduate to the following academic year. You will be expected to re-submit your dissertation by September 2020 and therefore unfortunately will not be eligible to attend graduation ceremonies in July 2020. You will therefore be invited to the following year's ceremony, pending successful completion of your programme.
How do I request a Visa letter for me and/or my guests?
If you require a visa letter for you or your guest(s), please submit an online document request via the ‘Forms’ page on the Student Hub
Letters ordered by 17:00 will be ready for collection from the Hub the following day from 11:00.
Students who have completed their studies and are unable to access the Online Hub should email the Hub at [email protected] to request the letter.
How do I let you know about any special access arrangements?
Please inform us of this when you are completing the online booking form in the special access requirements field.
What should I do if for religious reasons I am unable to shake hands?
It is customary for graduates to shake hands with the Chancellor and Dean as they cross the stage. However, this is not a requirement of graduation, but to avoid any embarrassment, if you would prefer not to shake hands please contact us at [email protected].
Is there parking at the venue?
No - There is no parking by the Ceremony venue. However, we do have a pay and display onsite car park at Regents University London. There are also pay and display areas around Regents Park.
