Graduation at DMU

Upcoming graduation ceremonies

The summer graduation ceremonies will be held from 9 September to 16 September 2023 at Curve Theatre for all students that have completed their course between 26 November 2022 and 30 June 2023. Invitations will be emailed towards the end of April.

The proposed dates for our winter ceremonies will be 23 January to 27 January 2024.

  1. Invitations

    Eligible students will receive an email invitation from Academic Awards, which is sent to your DMU alumni email address and any personal email address you registered on the university’s student record system. You can log in to your DMU Student Alumni account here.

    If you haven’t received an invite and have checked your junk mail, contact the graduation team by email at, or by phone on +44 (0) 116 257 7307 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).

    You will need your student ID, or P number, to book your place on the system. When entering your P number, remove the 'P' and just enter the number.

  2. Eligibility criteria

    These ceremonies are for students who have passed all elements of their course (and received results confirmation from the Faculty) between the dates of 2 July and 25 November 2022. These are strict deadlines; any student who passes after this date will be invited to our Summer ceremonies in September 2023. This also includes where reassessed work has been submitted but not finalised before 25 November.

    The closing date to book your place at the graduation ceremony is 4 December at 5pm.

  3. Key dates to note

    Some ceremonies fill up quickly, so seating might be limited; we strongly advise that you book straight away to avoid disappointment. If after booking you can no longer attend, you can cancel later.

    The key dates to remember are:

    • Graduation bookings open 12 noon on 8 November 2022 and close on 4 December at 5pm
    • Guest ticket bookings open 12 noon on 8 November 2022 for up to two initial guest tickets at £17.50 each. Guest ticket bookings closes on 4 December 5pm
    • Graduation robe hire opens 12 noon on 8 November and closes on 30 January 2023 at 5pm
    • Additional guest tickets – if they are available – will go on sale on the university’s online store on 13 December on a staggered by ceremony basis until 4 January 2023, subject to availability and sold on a first come, first served basis. Please note there is no guarantee that additional tickets will be available


Degree certificates

Degree certificates will be issued to students at the ceremonies in February. Certificates not  issued at ceremonies will be posted after the ceremonies to the permanent address that is registered on the university's student record system.

If you no longer have access to your student record via MyDMU and believe your permanent address is different to our records, please email stating your name, course and P number.

Please note that certificate collection in person at the university campus is not available.

Make your voice count! Take part in the Graduate Outcomes survey and tell us what graduate success means to you. Recent DMU graduates will be invited to take part in the survey 15 months after graduating and your responses will help us evaluate our courses and university offering.
