Graduation Eligibility

This page tells you how to find out if you are eligible for graduation, who to contact if you have not received an email and what your options are.

Key Facts

  • If your results been published between 11 September 2021 and 10 September 2022, all eligible Graduands will automatically receive an email from the Graduation Team
  • If you meet all eligibility criteria, you will be invited to attend graduation whether you studied full-time, part-time, on campus or online
  • If you have any questions about eligibility contact [email protected]


Students who have had their results officially published between 11 September 2021 and 10 September 2022 and meet all eligibility criteria will be automatically invited to attend a graduation ceremony as a Graduand.

All confirmed eligible students will receive a “Booking Now Open” email to both their ULaw and personal email stored on ELITE, please check your junk/spam folder just in case as well.

If you do not receive this email, but believe you should be eligible, please contact Academic Registry on [email protected]. They will be able to answer questions on eligibility status and your next steps, the graduation team does not hold this information.

The period between publication of results and our graduation ceremonies is very short, and it is often not possible for appeals to be processed and agreed in time for you to be eligible to attend your ceremony if your appeal is successful. Because the appeal outcome may affect your eligibility, you may have to defer to the next ceremony.

Traditionally if you transferred from the Master’s degree to the PgDip by 1 February you will be eligible for the May ceremony, or by 1 August for the November ceremony. This transfer needs to be approved and award confirmed by the cut-off date for your ceremony. Formal requests must be submitted to your campus Student Services and Assessments teams. Please note that transferring from a Master’s degree to a Postgraduate Diploma will have implications if you have a loan with Student Finance England.
