July 2018 dates

Degree Congregations will take place between Wednesday 4 July and Thursday 12 July 2018.

The specific date and time of each Degree Congregation will only be confirmed at the end of March 2018, once it has been approved by the Senate of the University. Unfortunately we are unable to give any indication of dates and times before this.

Please note that the allocation of Schools does not follow a pattern, therefore we would strongly advise graduands and guests to only make travel and/or accommodation plans once their attendance is confirmed, and this information is available.

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 in November.  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.  To check the specific date and time for your Degree Congregation please log on to the portal, click on the myProgress tab and then the Degree Congregations link.
