FAQs

Who is eligible to graduate during the July 2024 ceremonies?

All students who have been awarded since 30 June 2023 and have not yet attended graduation and all students who are due to be awarded in academic year 2023/24 before 30 June 2024. This includes all students who are awarded a fallback award before the 31 March 2024. Also, those who chose to defer their graduation by formal request in 2023. Graduation is not open to any of our Transnational Education (TNE) students.

Based on the above timescales, if you believe you should have received an email regarding attending a graduation ceremony and you have not, please contact Student Records by logging an enquiry in UNIverse or emailing records@tees.ac.uk.

I am still waiting for my results? / I haven’t yet been awarded?

If you have not yet received your award or are awaiting results, you will still be asked to pre-register.

Why do I need to pre-register?

We ask all potentially eligible students to pre-register for graduation so we can obtain a more accurate picture of how many people from each course are likely to attend. This enables us to create an accurate schedule of ceremonies. If you don’t pre-register we may not allow enough space in your ceremony, and if you later decide to attend you might not be able to graduate with your cohort.

When does Pre-Registration close?

19 March 2024.

When will I find out the date and time of my ceremony?

When pre-registration closes we will create a ceremony schedule that will include the date and time of your ceremony. Once this is ready you will receive another email asking if you would like to book tickets to your specific ceremony. This will happen in mid April.

If I choose to defer when will the next graduation be held?

The next graduation ceremonies at Middlesbrough campus will be held in July 2025.

I have pre-registered, when do I book guest tickets and make other graduation arrangements?

You don’t need to do anything else at the moment. Wait until you receive an invitation to book tickets for your specific ceremony. During ticket booking you will have the opportunity to request guest tickets and tell us about any specific requirements you may have. Other arrangements such as hiring a gown and photography should wait until your place at graduation has been confirmed. You will receive confirmation of your attendance once your results have been released.

When is my attendance guaranteed?

All students wishing to graduate need to pre-register first. You will then be invited to book tickets once your ceremony date and time has been released. You will receive confirmation of your attendance once your results have been released to you.

Once you have your attendance confirmation you can book your gown, photography and make travel arrangements.

If your results are not due to be released to you until late June then your confirmation email will arrive in early July.

What happens if I have an outstanding debt?

If you have an outstanding academic debt you will NOT be eligible to attend the graduation ceremonies. You will also not be able to receive your award certificate and you will not be included in the awards brochure.

Check your account and make payments

You can pre-register but should ensure you have a payment plan in place which will ensure all of your tuition fees and academic debt is paid ahead of your graduation.

When will I receive my certificate?

Certificates for all those awarded in the June boards will be available for collection on your graduation day. If your certificate is not collected, it will be posted to your home address (the address on your student record at the point of award). It is important to ensure that your home address is correct on our system. You can edit your address details on e-Vision via Personal Details.

Diploma Supplements can be downloaded from e-Vision once you have received notification of your award. Diploma Supplements are only available to students studying a main award who achieve the intended award. The Diploma Supplement includes your transcript.

Transcripts and certified copies of your certificate are available for purchase from the online shop
