Failure to email through changes by the relevant date will result in your name being announced and printed incorrectly.

Graduands will have to pay for corrections on official documentation (testamur and transcript) made after the deadline.

Graduands are only invited to attend graduation once their completion has been verified through the governance process involving the BOE, the Academic Board and Board of Directors. 

For the responsibility of each of these bodies, please refer to the Governance Charter.

Once the Board of Examiners has confirmed that you meet all course requirements you will be deemed 'completed' and your course status will be changed to 'complete' in Avantis.
