This year, our Graduation Ceremonies will take place on Monday 16 September 2019.

As in previous years, the University’s Graduation Ceremonies will take place in the prestigious Symphony Hall at the Birmingham International Convention Centre (ICC). As you get ready to celebrate, the following information and guidance will ensure your day runs smoothly.

Three Graduation Ceremonies will be held during the day, each lasting approximately 1½ hours. The start times are as follows: 

Time School

There will be a number of photo studios set up in the ICC on the day of the Ceremonies and you can have a photo taken (alone, with fellow students, or with your family). A photograph of you crossing the stage will also be available via the William Northam website.

UCB's marketing department will also be taking photos and videos on the day, which will be used for social media updates and future marketing campaigns. If you don't want a photo or video of you taken, please let a member of the team know. An online gallery of photos will be made available in the next few days after the event.

Live streaming of the Graduation Ceremonies will be available on the day. Please subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notified when the event starts.
