Graduation at UCL

A graduation ceremony is a formal event that celebrates students’ academic achievements and ceremoniously confers degrees, which eligible students may optionally attend. Degree certificates are issued via post; students do not need to attend a ceremony in order to graduate.

Who can attend?

UCL Computer Science students who are being awarded the following qualifications may attend a graduation ceremony:

  • Bachelor of Science (BSc)
  • Master of Engineering (MEng)
  • Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip)
  • Master of Science (MSc)
  • Master of Research (MRes)
  • Engineering Doctorate (EngD)
  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

Students graduating with CertHE, DipHE and PGCert awards are currently not eligible to attend graduation under UCL rules.

How do I know if I am eligible?

You can check your eligibility via Portico. If you are eligible, once the application process begins you will see a link to purchase tickets in the Graduation Ceremonies container.

If you feel you are eligible but do not have a link please contact the Student Support and Events Team.

How do I attend?

Places at graduation ceremonies are not automatically allocated. You need to use the UCL online booking site to indicate you would like to attend and purchase your ticket/s. You must do this before the deadline to guarantee your place/s.
