Celebrating your achievements

Graduation Ceremonies

Your Graduation Ceremony is a great time to celebrate your achievements with your family and friends. This year, the Graduation Ceremonies will be held at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) from 8-11 November 2016.

You’ll receive your invitation after you’ve had your results, usually within a couple of weeks after your last exam board. But don’t worry, we guarantee a ticket to every eligible student - as well as the opportunity to purchase up to three guest tickets – until midnight on Wednesday 12 October. If you haven’t had your invitation by 3 October, please contact AskBU.

Your invitation will include information on how to RSVP and below you’ll find information on what to do next, getting a copy of your award certificate and the social side of graduation.
