Dates and times – including deadline dates

Please see below for information on:

  • Dates and times of ceremonies
  • Deadline dates for graduation
  • Provisional dates for future summer graduation ceremonies

These dates and times are important and we suggest that you print them off and keep them safe or put them in your calendar.

NB Always remember to update the Graduation Team if you change your email address as the Graduation Team needs to stay in contact with you right up until your ceremony date. This is especially important if you change from a Southampton University email address to a home or work email address.
