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.

Graduation Security Announcement

Following the recent terrorist attacks in London and Manchester, an increased security presence and extensive checks 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 Square One, the Cathedral and the Foundation OnCampus Main Hall (Priory Street) or the Britannia Hotel [photography]. There will not be any access to Priory Street as it will be closed to vehicles.  Please only bring small bags with you since larger bags and holdalls will not be permitted.

Thank you for your co-operation.
