students at graduation


Graduation is a significant milestone in every student’s career – it’s an opportunity for the University to formally recognise your hard work and congratulate you on your success.

It’s also a special time for family and friends, who will gather from near and far to celebrate your achievements and wish you luck as you embark on a new adventure – whatever that may be.

Most importantly, it’s a special time for you – an unforgettable day you’ll feel proud to be part of.

Graduation ceremonies

Graduation at The University of Manchester takes place in summer and winter, with our next ceremonies taking place from Monday, 9 to Friday, 20 July 2018. All ceremonies are held in the Whitworth Hall on Oxford Road.

Watch the ceremonies live

If you're unable to make it in person, you can still watch the degree ceremonies on our live stream. We'll stream the ceremonies here from Monday, 9 July 2018.

Share your graduation memories

Graduation is a special day for everyone, and we want to share in your celebrations! Send your photos, tweets and selfies to @AlumniUoM using the hashtag #UoMGraduation. We’ll be sharing the latest pictures from the graduation photo booth on our Facebook page every day. Even if you graduated years ago, we’d still love to hear your advice for our new alumni.

From the moment you graduate, you’ll automatically become part of our worldwide alumni network, and will benefit from the influence and opportunities it offers. Find out more by visiting Your Manchester Online – a dedicated space for all University of Manchester alumni, where you can continue to share memories, experiences and advice.
