Bath Spa University Graduation

Graduation is a chance to celebrate your academic achievement with friends and family and your cohort.

Our Summer ceremonies will be held in Bath Abbey on Wednesday 19th – Friday 21st July 2017.

The ceremony you can attend is determined by when you complete your studies, your School and your course. Each of the ceremonies will last around one hour.

  • If you are graduating with a major/minor or joint (equally balanced) combined degree which has been taught across two schools, you will be able to choose which of the schools you wish to graduate with.
  • Combined awards will be presented as a single group within each School, e.g. if you have studied History and Music, you will graduate with other Combined awards from the School, not with BA History or BA Music.
  • Creative Arts is treated the same as a joint combined degree, and you will be able to choose at the time of booking which of the two relevant schools you graduate with (if applicable). Creative Arts degrees will be presented as a single group within each School, e.g. if you have studied Art and Music, you will graduate with other Creative Arts awards from the School, not with BA Fine Art or BA Music.
  • All students on a Specialised Education course (also known as the ‘3+1’, which leads straight into the PGCE course) will graduate with the Institute for Education, regardless of whether they do a combination of subjects within this course.

You can check which School your course belongs to HERE and your invitation letter will state which ceremony or ceremonies you are eligible to attend. If you are unsure, please contact the Graduation Office.

In the event of oversubscription for a particular ceremony, the University reserves the right to vary the allocation of students to ceremonies but we will make every effort to avoid this.
