  • Ensure you have completed the correct application form for your specific subject area as some Schools have been split into 2 or 3 ceremonies

  • Ensure that you have included your graduation fee and payment for extra guest tickets. If your payment has been unsuccessful we will try to contact you via the email address on your form or your telephone number

  • Clear any outstanding debt with the University by 24 October 2014, if you still have an outstanding debt after the deadline, you will not be able to graduate or attend the ceremony
