About Graduation

University of Roehampton typically holds two graduations each year. These are held in mid-September and the end of January.

For future ceremonies, we will communicate with eligible graduands when a date is confirmed. We aim to email graduands 3-4 months before their ceremony to let them know they will be invited. Please do not make non-refundable travel arrangements until you have successfully registered for the event.

Should you need to update your contact details in the meantime, please log on to your student profile or contact the Nest if you require assistance.

If you need to speak with a member of our team, please email If you have sent an email inquiry we aim to respond within three working days.

If your enquiry is urgent you are able to contact us via phone on 0208 392 3344.

Please note that we receive a high volume of phone and email enquiries.

Your invitation email is the official communication from the University and can be used for visa purposes for both students and their guests.

Certificates are not linked to a particular graduation ceremony but to University Awards and Progression Boards. The certificates are produced on a timetable depending when a student is awarded. It is therefore very important that your permanent address is kept up to date at all times of the year using the online facility.

Certificates are produced between six and eight weeks after each Board.
