Even though graduation seems a long way off, you must register your interest in graduating either in person or in absentia before the deadline. Absentia means that you do not physically attend the ceremony but will still receive your certificate by post. Below is a list of steps you must take to graduate.

1. You must register your desire to graduate either in person or in absentia:

  • Even if you do not wish to attend the ceremony you must pay the graduation fee to receive your certificate.
  • Do not wait to see if you have passed your modules first, you must complete registration before the deadline. To see this year’s registration deadline, click here.
