Graduation at CU London

Graduation at CU London

Upon completing your course at CU London you'll be able to attend a graduation ceremony. Graduation is one of the highlights of a student's time at university, and family and friends are encouraged to join the celebrations.
Every year, the ceremony is created to ensure a truly stunning occasion and a lasting memory.

It's always been our intention to be able to celebrate the great achievements of our students in person. We know how important this is to you and your loved ones, as it means a great deal to us too. Holding virtual celebration events was a way to mark the academic achievements of our recent graduates during the pandemic, but now we are able to celebrate in person.

Should you have any questions specifically related to a ceremony that has not been covered by the information published on this webpage (including the FAQ section) and email correspondence please contact us via email and we will aim to respond to you within 3 working days (Monday-Friday). 

Should you have any questions relating to CU Coventry or Coventry University graduation ceremonies please do not email the above address, queries must be sent to

If for any reason we are unable to provide you with your certificate on the day of the ceremony, we will send it via post following the event.

Please note that the University Group is not responsible for any certificates not received due to an incorrect address. If this happens and you require a replacement then you must order via the online shop and pay the appropriate fee.

If you are searching for a job or plan to go on to further study, a prospective employer or university can still check your award with our verification partner by following the simple instructions at Hedd. Please see further information on this in the FAQ section.

You will not be eligible to attend the graduation ceremony if the Progression and Award Board determines that you have not met the requirements of your award or you intend to enrol on a further stage of your course (e.g. a top-up to honours) or you have an appeal in progress.

Additionally, any student who has an outstanding debt to the university will not be allowed to attend the graduation ceremony nor receive their certificate.
