December 2019 dates

Degree Congregations will take place between Tuesday 10 December and Friday 13 December 2019.
The specific date and time of each Degree Congregation will only be confirmed at the end of October 2019.  We are only able to set specific dates once the deadline for students to reply has passed.  We guarantee a place to all students who confirm their attendance by this deadline.  Given the limited capacity of the Great Hall, we can only begin allocating specific dates once we know how many students wish to attend from each School/Department/programme.  Year on year we see an increasing number of students graduating, and an increasingly higher number of students wishing to attend their graduation in person, therefore to avoid not being able to accommodate all students wishing to attend we cannot accurately release dates before the end of October.

Attending the right Degree Congregation

Once you have confirmed your attendance, and the date and time of your Degree Congregation has been confirmed above, you will be emailed a link to our website. Our website contains all of the information you will need to prepare for your Degree Congregation, and includes details of your gown hire, tickets, ceremony dates, times, locations and commonly asked questions regarding the Degree Congregation itself.

Checking the date and time

Once you receive your email linking to our website we strongly advise all graduands to check the date and time of their Degree Congregation via My.Bham.
