Applying to Graduate

Students need to apply to graduate from their course and to receive their award certificate. Even if you have successfully completed all your subjects, you have not officially graduated and cannot call yourself a graduate – until you have been through the graduation process.

Before applying for graduation, you must refer to the Graduation Checklist to ensure a smooth process towards your Graduation.
