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.
