We’re delighted to announce that our booking system opened at midday on Tuesday 8 November. 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.

These ceremonies are for students who have passed all elements of their course (and has received results confirmation from the faculty) between 2 July and 25 November 2022. 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.

To find out when your ceremony takes place, check the full graduation schedule online.

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.

To book your place, visit the graduation booking system. The closing date is Sunday 4 December at 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. 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 7303 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).

Once again, we're using StageClip to capture that special moment when you receive your degree on stage. This was a big success when we first used the service in our recent summer graduations. Watch this video to find out more.

Graduation will always be one of the most special days of a student’s life. At DMU we work especially hard to ensure you have the most fantastic finale to your time at university.

We recognise that sometimes students are unable to attend their graduation ceremony because they are unable to meet the costs of tickets for their guests and gown hire.

We are therefore offering students who are facing genuine and unavoidable financial hardship the opportunity to apply to our graduation support fund by submitting an application to receive two guest tickets and gown hire with no charge. Please note that you do not have to pay for your own ticket to graduate. The fund will be open to applications from Tuesday 8 November until Sunday 4 December.
