Graduation ceremonies for 2023
Students who are eligible to attend a Graduation for the University of Portsmouth's Class of 2023 cohort will receive emails from us with details of your ceremony from the end of February 2023
Graduation is a formal ceremony to celebrate your achievement of successfully completing your studies at the University.
Graduation is a moment of pride and happiness, but also a chance to reflect on your years spent as a student.
What happens at a Graduation ceremony?
The ceremony consists of speeches from the Presiding Officer, a student speaker and sometimes an honorary Graduate who has made an important impact in their field or the community.
A key part of the ceremony as a Graduate is walking across the stage in your academic dress.
The Presenting Head will announce your name and course.
Each ceremony lasts about 1.5 hours.
