Ceremony attendance

Who will be invited?

Students who we believe will potentially have their award confirmed by an Assessment Board between 4 July 2023 and 13 October  2023.

If you receive an invitation to the ceremonies and you know you won’t complete it in time, please ignore the invitation. You will be invited to another later ceremony.

If you think you should be graduating and you have not received an invitation email by 30 September 2023 please email us at graduation@derby.ac.uk.

Confirming your attendance and ordering tickets

The majority of students will need to order tickets for their ceremony before the results have been published.

Please complete the registration/order process on the assumption that you will successfully complete your studies. Please note: Receiving an email invitation does not imply you have been successful.

You must not wait until you receive your results to confirm your attendance/purchase tickets. It will be too late to fit you into the ceremony.

When ordering your tickets check that your registered name is spelt correctly and matches the official documentation, i.e. your passport or birth/marriage certificate. If it is not correct contact the Awards Team by email at graduation@derbyac.uk and includes proof of your name.
