Apply to graduate in person
If you are unable to access MyUC, please get in touch with the Contact Centre on 0800 827 748 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications to graduate in person at the December 2021 Graduation ceremonies will be open on August 1 and will close on August 31.
If you are graduating in person, it is compulsory to wear correct academic regalia. You should order this as soon as you have applied to graduate. Late regalia orders will incur a non-refundable late fee. Find out how to order your academic regalia.
All graduands are guaranteed three guest tickets. Graduands do not need a ticket for themselves. Guest tickets will be available via our electronic ticketing platform the week before the ceremonies. Graduands will be sent an email with their procession place card and a link to the ticketing platform where they will be required to add the details for their guests. If there are extra tickets available graduands will be advised via email the week of the ceremonies. We are not always able to provide everyone with the full number of tickets they hope for however the ceremonies will be live streamed into the James Hay theatre, adjacent to the Auditoruim. Additional guests and members of the public are welcome to enjoy the ceremony from here.
If you are graduating with more than one degree, please see the important information about multiple qualifications.
Planning further study?
If you are eligible to graduate with a qualification, but intend to undertake further study towards that qualification to complete a second major, or you intend to transfer your courses to a higher qualification (for example, from a postgraduate certificate to a postgraduate diploma), you must seek further academic advice from your College Office. See College Advisors (Liaison Office website) for details.
If you have completed a qualification and you are planning to continue to a new qualification, for example, you have completed a BA and plan to enrol in a BA(Hons), these are separate qualifications and you can graduate with them separately.
Transcripts and Letters
If you require your official academic record or an official letter from the University confirming your eligibility to graduate, please see Academic Transcripts and Letters. Once your qualification has been awarded, your name will be added to the online Graduate Search which is publicly accessible. The University also gives names of graduates to their former secondary school.
Stay connected with UC
When you graduate, you become a member of the UC Alumni. To join the Alumni network and remain connected to UC, visit the Alumni and Fundraising website.
