Eligibility to graduate at the February 2018 degree congregation depends on the following criteria:
- Your degree must be awarded at an examinations board by Friday 19 January 2018.
- Outstanding tuition fees - you will not be permitted to graduate unless all outstanding tuition fees have been settled by Monday 8 January 2018. While you are still a registered student you can use the MyBristol portal Fees and Funding channel to check if you have outstanding tuition fees and to make a payment. For detailed information about payments please refer to the student funding pages.
- Appeals - you will not be able to graduate until the appeal has been resolved. Any student whose appeal is still outstanding after Friday 19 January 2018 will be withdrawn from the ceremony, regardless of whether or not the appeal is resolved in time.
How can I check my award? When confirmed, your award will be available on your Student Info page. You should receive an email from the Examinations Office to tell you when your award is available.
Should I wait for my award before registering for graduation? No, you should register for graduation whether you know your award or not.
What if I am not awarded my degree? If you register your attendance at the February 2018 ceremonies and your degree is then not awarded at an examinations board by the relevant deadline, you will automatically be put forward to the ceremonies in July 2018. If this is the case we will send you an email to confirm the situation, shortly before the February ceremonies.
If you have received an invitation email but know that you will not be eligible to graduate in February 2018, please contact the Graduation Office so that we can amend our records and put you forward to the next degree congregation. Please check the eligibility criteria above and Information for postgraduate students, if applicable, before contacting us with this information.
