The University of Southampton

Eligibility and how to apply

The University of Southampton's graduation ceremonies are held in December and July every year. To be eligible to attend you must:

Winter Graduation ceremonies are mostly attended by Postgraduate students who receive their final results before the November award date in the following disciplines:                                               

All other Postgraduate programmes usually receive their final results on the December award date and attend Summer Graduation.

Most Undergraduate programmes receive their final results by the June award date and attend Summer Graduation.

Postgraduate Research can be awarded at any time of year and come to the next eligible Graduation.

Are you changing from a 4 year to a 3 year course?

Your change of programme must be confirmed and updated on your student record by your Student Office before the end of March to be eligible for summer graduation.

If you change your programme after this time, please let us and your Faculty know as soon as possible so that we can do our best to find a place for you in a ceremony after general applications. There is however no guarantee of a place after the March deadline.  

How do I apply?

We will send you an email with full details. Please make sure we have a current personal email address for you by visiting SUSSED and selecting the 'My Student Record (Banner Self Service)' icon and updating your email address.
