What you need to do

  1. Step 1


    Class of 2022

    • July ceremony invites will be sent in April
    • November ceremony invites will be sent in September

    We will send your invitation to your UWE Bristol email address and your personal email address. If you have completed your course you can access your UWE Live Mail through Office 365 for 12 months after your award is confirmed. Please make sure your personal email address is up to date in MyUWE.

    Students from partnership institutions

    If you haven’t received any emails regarding your graduation ceremony, please contact the Graduation team at graduation@uwe.ac.uk. We will be able to invite you if there is enough space in the relevant ceremony. You will need to send your request at least one week before the registration deadline, as otherwise we will not be able to include you.

  2. Step 2

    Please make sure that you read and understand the graduation terms and conditions before you register.

  3. Step 3

    You cannot register for your Awards Ceremony if you have a tuition fee debt. You will need to clear your debt before the registration deadline, as otherwise we cannot guarantee that we will be able to include you in the graduation programme or the ceremony.

    View our information on ways to pay. If you have any problems with paying or would like to discuss your debt with a member of staff please contact the Income Office at tel: +44 (0)117 32 87888 or cash.office@uwe.ac.uk.

    Debts will need to be cleared at least one week before the deadline to register for your ceremony.

  4. Step 4

    • Class of 2022: Registration for the July ceremonies is now open. Registration for the November ceremonies will open in September.

    Your Awards Ceremony invitation will contain step-by-step instructions (PDF) on how to register your attendance. Please note that you will only be able to register once you have received your Awards Ceremony invite.

    Attendance at an Awards Ceremony is free to all graduating students. Even if you do not intend to buy guest tickets, please complete your registration - you will not be charged if you do not add guest tickets.

    Your results will be released after the registration deadline, so you must register before the registration deadline to secure your place.

    If you are unsure if you will complete your award in time

    We understand that you may be unsure if you will or will not be eligible to attend the award ceremony. This may make you hesitant to register for the ceremony, purchase guest tickets and hire robes.

    If you are in this situation when you receive the graduation invite we would advise you to register for your ceremony without purchasing guest tickets or hiring robes. This would be free of charge and will guarantee your place at the ceremony if you complete your award.

    You would then be able to return to the online store to purchase guest tickets and hire your robes via the Ede & Ravenscroft website closer to the time of your ceremony. Just make sure you do so before the registration deadline.

    In the event that you don't complete your award, we will send a refund for your unused guest tickets. Please review our guidance on cancellations and refunds for any items purchased.

  5. Step 5

    Hire your robe from Ede & Ravenscroft. Have a tape measure ready to measure the circumference of your head.

  6. Step 6

    View details of the photography packages provided by Ede & Ravenscroft for Awards Ceremonies.

  7. Step 7

    Find out about access options available for graduands and guests, including accessible parking, toilets and induction loop.

    If you or your guests are coming from a country that is outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), we can produce a letter to confirm that we are expecting you and your named guests to attend the ceremony. Find out about visa support letters.

  8. Step 8

    We will contact you about additional guest ticket availability once the registration deadline has passed and if you have registered for your ceremony.

    Find out more about guest tickets

  9. Step 9

    Log in to MyUWE after the Award boards and results publication date to check if you have completed your award.

    Make sure you read through the information sent to you in your final diary date reminder, which you will receive closer to the time of your ceremony.

When not to register

If you do not complete your award in time for your ceremony your registration will be cancelled. You will be refunded for any guest tickets you have purchased.
