  • Who is eligible to attend a ceremony?

    To be eligible to attend a Graduation ceremony students must pass their course with an eligible award.

    Please note if you are a WGU Online Student you will only be eligible to attend this ceremony if you have successfully achieved your award by 12nd August 2022 following your assessment process. Any WGU Online students who achieve their award after this date will be invited to the next set of Graduation ceremonies.

    Some awards are not included in the Wrexham Glyndŵr University Graduation ceremonies and so you would not receive an invitation if you achieve one of these awards.

    Additionally students studying at certain Partner institutions are not included in the Wrexham Glyndŵr University ceremonies, as these partners hold their own celebration events, and so you will not receive an invitation.

    If you think you should be invited to attend a Graduation ceremony and do not receive an invitation (after online registration is open) please email graduation@glyndwr.ac.uk.

  • Clearing Outstanding Debt

  • Can I attend my ceremony if I do not achieve my intended award?

    Please note if you are studying for a Bachelor’s degree, Foundation Degree or Diploma of Higher Education you will not be permitted to attend your Graduation ceremony if you achieve a lower exit award of Certificate of Higher Education, as this level of award is not included in the ceremonies. This will apply regardless of you completing the online registration process.

    If you do achieve an award of Certificate of Higher Education you will not receive any final emails from us in preparation for your ceremony with a schedule for the day and times of arrival etc as we will not be expecting you.
