Graduation is one of our favourite events of the year. It's a time to celebrate your hard work and achievements, and to mark the start of your next adventure.

We hope you have enjoyed your studies with us and we will be very sad to see you go. That said, we look forward to welcoming you to our Alumni Community, and maybe even to your Masters or PhD! You can find information about the 2023 graduation ceremonies, including what to do on the day,  FAQs, and the dates and times, by following the links below. #UniSuffolkGrad

The conferral of your award is when your award is officially granted and you are issued with your certificate.

  • Awards agreed by an assessment board on or before Friday 10 March 2023 will be conferred on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 April 2023. 
  • Awards agreed by an assessment board after 10 March and on or before Friday 8 September 2023 will be conferred at the annual graduation ceremonies (see dates above).

You will be issued with your final HEAR and a digital copy of your award certificate on conferral day. The paper copy of the certificate will be sent by post (provided students have confirmed their postal address in the online graduation registration form) shortly afterwards.

There is no graduation ceremony in April, and all students whose awards are conferred in April will be invited to attend the annual graduation ceremonies in October.

For conferral in April, students who have completed their studies and had their award agreed by an assessment board by Friday 10 March 2023 will be contacted by the Graduation Office in March and asked to complete the Graduation Registration form in OASIS. 

For conferral in October, students who have completed their studies and had their award agreed by an assessment board after 10 March and by Friday 8 September 2023 will be contacted by the Graduation Office from August onwards and asked to complete the Graduation Registration form in OASIS.

When the form is available for you to complete, you will be sent an email to your student email address and the personal email address that we have for you on our records. A copy of this email will also be stored in your correspondence history in OASIS.

Whether you are interested in attending the annual graduation ceremonies or not, it is important that you complete the registration form when asked to do so to ensure that we have a correct record of your name and address details. This is the final opportunity for you to check your details and correct any misspelling of your name before your award is conferred and your certificate is issued. We also need you to confirm your postal address for your certificate. If you do not complete the form, we will not post your certificate.

When you complete the form, you will also be able to register your interest in attending the annual graduation ceremonies. You will be invited to attend a particular ceremony (details above). It is not possible for you to change to another ceremony if the date or location is not convenient. If you register your interest in attending, you will be contacted again with further information, including how to request and purchase guest tickets. 

The Graduation Registration form is also the place where you can tell us if you would like your name to be included on the Class of 2023 t-shirt/hoodie. We will only include your name if you ask us to.

It is important that all graduating students complete the Graduation Registration form when asked to do so.

  • For April conferral, the deadline for completing the form and confirming your details is noon on Wednesday 29 March 2023. 
  • For October conferral, the deadline for completing the form and confirming your details is noon on Tuesday 19 September 2023.

For information about how we use your data for the purposes of the graduation ceremonies and conferral of awards, please see the Graduation Privacy Notice.

All students on an eligible course at the 5X社区 will be issued with an electronic Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR), which replaces the traditional transcript and diploma supplement - find out more about what this contains, who is eligible, when they are issued and more.
