Coventry University

Your graduation is the culmination of your studies and is an important event for you and your family and/or your friends. In order to make this a positive, memorable experience, it is important that you register your attendance for your designated ceremony via NOVA by the deadline given. Unfortunately, if you miss that deadline you will have to attend the next appropriate ceremony as we are not able to accept any late registrations. So if you want to graduate with the rest of your course, you must make sure that you register in time.

If you are not able to or do not wish to attend a graduation ceremony, you must make sure that the University has your most up to date correspondence address, as that is the address where your certificate will be sent. If you need to change your address, you can do this on SOLAR by no later than the date of your ceremony.

Certificates are posted following the ceremony by standard post.  Please note that the University is not responsible for any certifcates not received.  If this happens and you require a replacement then you must order via the online shop and pay the appropriate fee.

Graduation Security Announcement

Security checks, including bag searches, will be in place for all forthcoming awards ceremonies. Please allow extra time to access our venues since these checks may slow down the entry of guests and students into our venues and also the Cathedral.    Please only bring small bags with you since larger bags and holdalls will not be permitted due to lack of space and the University does not offer bag storeage facilities.

Please also note there will no access to Priory Street for vehicles during graduation.

Thank you for your co-operation.
