About Graduation

Information about forthcoming graduations appears here in the months running up to the ceromony.

Teesside University summer graduation will take place between 18th and 22nd July in Olympia Building on Middlesbrough Campus.

If you are eligible to attend, you will receive an email from The University inviting you to register with e-vision. On the e-vision site, log-in and click on My Graduation. From here you will be guided through the registration process, or if you do not wish to attend, advised how to arrange for your certificate to be posted to you.

Follow the registration steps carefully and read the Useful Links section – these links contain essential information about the registration process.

How do I know if I will be invited to graduation?
If you are eligible to attend summer graduation you will receive an email into your student email account before mid-May. The email will advise you the date and time of your ceremony and how you can register your wish to attend. If you know people on your course who have already received an email but you haven’t, contact

If I register does this guarantee attendance?
No, registration advises us that you wish to attend your graduation ceremony. Your eligibility is only confirmed once you have made satisfactory academic progress and have received confirmation from us that you can attend – we confirm attendance in early July. In addition you won’t be able to attend if you have any outstanding debts to the University.

I have registered, should I order my gown and make travel arrangements?
No, don’t make any arrangements until you have received a letter from the University confirming your attendance. Confirmation will be sent out in early July.

I have applied for more than 2 guest tickets, will I get them?
It depends. We guarantee every student 2 guest tickets. The number of students choosing to attend each ceremony dictates the number of guest tickets above 2 that we can allocate. If a ceremony has space we will begin an additional allocation process. We make this allocation as fair as we possibly can, but sometimes we have to make random allocations of remaining guest tickets. There may be instances where someone you know on the same ceremony has received more guest tickets than you.

When will I know how many guest tickets I have been allocated?
The number of guest tickets you have been allocated will be the number you receive with your confirmation letter in early July.

Can I defer my graduation and come at a later date?
Yes, you will be given the option on e-vision to attend your ceremony or defer to November graduation. If you choose to defer we will contact you nearer the time to make arrangements. I have missed the deadline for registering to attend graduation, can I still attend? We encourage everyone to register before the closing date. Whilst we try our best to accommodate those who have missed the deadline, late registrations run the risk of not being able to attend the same ceremony as their course-mates.

Where can I find more information about graduation?
The best place to look is on your e-vision account, under the My Graduation tab. Here you will find a series of Useful Links which cover all aspects of graduation, from registration, to gown hire, to car parking. If you need to talk to someone you can call 01325 342080, or you can email

We film every ceremony - you can order a DVD by visiting the University's on-line shop.
