Awards Ceremonies (or Congregations) are held in July and November each year.
All students hoping to graduate or be presented MUST enrol to graduate by completing a form and paying the appropriate fee (£35 to graduate in person; £20 to graduate "in absentia"). Details of the ceremonies and enrolment forms are usually available from the Graduations and Transcripts Team in March each year.
Students who wish to graduate in July must register by the second Friday in May - they cannot wait until their results or their award has been confirmed.
The closing date to register for graduation in June/July 2013 is 10th May and for graduation in November the closing date is 27th September.
Postgraduate Diploma students may, if they wish, be "presented" at a November ceremony only. To do so, they should complete a Graduation Enrolment form and pay the appropriate fee.
Graduation enrolment should be made via credit or debit card on the online shop at: http://onlineshop.strath.ac.uk
(Product Catalogue, Student Experience).
Under Ordinance 5 of the University, "No person shall be admitted to a Degree...or granted a Diploma...unless he has paid the fees prescribed and any other sums due to the University". As well as preventing students from graduating, outstanding debts will also prevent registration for the next year of a course (Regulation 6.4.8).
As you are about to graduate from the University it is important to know that the Careers Service will continue to support you. Our services are available to you for the next ten years – the first year is free of charge. You are welcome to come into the Careers Service in Livingstone Tower to access our resources, to meet with a Careers Adviser, or to attend an event – we remain open throughout the summer vacation. If you cannot come in, we will work with you by phone, Skype or e-mail.

Graduates who have lost or mislaid their original parchment may request a replacement degree certificate. The fee for this service is £35 and we aim to be able to re-issue the replacement to you within 7 to 10 working days. The replacement that is issued will be produced within the current University style and will state at the top:
This parchment is issued in replacement of the original which is presumed to be destroyed.
Regrettably we are unable to reproduce certificates for courses that were completed at Jordanhill College of Education prior to the 1993 merger with the University of Strathclyde.
