Registration and Eligibility

Registration for the December 2021 ceremonies will be open from 11 October to 1 November 2021.

Deadline for registration: Monday 1 November 2021.

How to register

When registration opens, you can book your place through the registration portal where you can also:

  • register if you are attending or not attending
  • select up to two free guest tickets
  • confirm your details and any special requirements.

We are unable to accept any late registration requests after the deadline of Monday 1 November 2021.

If you cannot attend your ceremony due to extenuating circumstances, you must inform us by Monday 15 November 2021. Each request is assessed on a case by case basis and is not guaranteed.


Students are invited to attend one Graduation ceremony and you will be eligible to attend if you successfully complete your course before Friday 29 October 2021.

You must register ahead of receiving your results. However once results are known, you are not eligible to attend the Graduation ceremony if:

  • you have been unsuccessful in your assessments
  • you have an academic appeal or reconsideration request in progress or are subject to an investigation for academic misconduct (you may be invited to a later ceremony once the situation is resolved)
  • you are in debt to the University for unpaid tuition fees

Students with outstanding debt

Students with outstanding debts for unpaid tuition fees will not be eligible to attend their designated ceremony unless payment has been made in full by Friday 29 October 2021. In these circumstances students will not be deferred to a later round of ceremonies.

Please contact Income Finance and Debt Management regarding outstanding payments on +44 (0)115 848 6500 or by email.

Not attending?

We still need you to tell us through the registration portal if you are not attending Graduation and update your contact details. After the ceremonies, we will post your Graduation certificate to you and therefore need to know where to post it. Your address details should be up-to-date on your NOW portal by Monday 22 November 2021.

In the event of a change to the Graduation ceremonies

If the Graduation Ceremony cannot take place or is delayed or the ceremony time needs to change due to events beyond the control of Nottingham Trent University, including (without limitation) fire, explosion, terrorist act (or threat of terrorist act), act of God, outbreak of communicable disease, epidemic, pandemic, civil emergencies, any Government restrictions, order, rule, regulation or action by a Government or public authority, national mourning (any member of the royal family) or as a result of any industrial action or dispute involving Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham Trent University will contact you as soon as possible to let you know.  

Nottingham Trent University will not be liable for any losses direct or otherwise incurred by the graduates or their guests for delays caused by the event being cancelled, delayed or rescheduled. Please note, the provision of ceremonies will be dependent on the COVID-19 restrictions and Government guidelines at the time.
