When will I be invited?

Postgraduate taught students will be invited in August. If you are expecting to complete and be awarded before December, and have not been invited by the end of August, please contact the Student Centre (student.centre@brunel.ac.uk).

Postgraduate research students will only be invited upon having sucessfully submitted to the Library.

How do I respond?

To respond to the task in eVision:

  1. Go to https://evision.brunel.ac.uk
  2. Enter your username (your username is your student ID number without the /1, /2 etc).
  3. Enter your eVision student portal password (or follow the on-screen instructions if you have forgotten your password).
  4. Look at the top of the screen and click on “my Graduation”.

If the "my Graduation" tab isn't available please send an email to awarding@brunel.ac.uk with the subject heading of "my graduation - (student number).

Why do I need to respond?

It is important to inform the University if you wish to attend so that appropriate arrangements are made regarding your attendance or absence status.

Responding also enables you to:

  •  secure visa support letters for you and your guests
  •  ensure your attendance and guest tickets

It is as important to inform the University that you will not be attending as it is that you will be attending.

If you are not planning to attend, in addition to responding to the graduation you will also need to complete the eVision certificate task. This is so that arrangements can be made to send your certificate to you without delay following your ceremony. The eVision task is available in the “my Course> View Award” tabs. If you have any problems logging in to your eVision account then please contact our student centre via email; student.centre@brunel.ac.uk or by phone on; +44 (0)1895 268268 and they will be able to assist you. If you do not request your certificate it will not be automatically produced.

If you do not wish to attend and do not reply to the invitation, there may be a delay in your certificate being available regardless of when you completed the certificate task.

Please note non-attendance will not automatically make you eligible for future ceremonies.

Deferral requests are granted in exceptional circumstances and if you wish to defer to the next available ceremony please awarding@brunel.ac.uk with a short description and reason for requesting deferral; students will be informed of the decision as soon as possible.

What is the deadline for responding?

In order for you to take part in your ceremony and to sit with your peers as well as guaranteeing two guest tickets (charged at £26 each) for your ceremony, you will need to complete your invitation task by Sunday 26 November 2017.

If you miss this deadline, you may not be able attend the ceremony or may not be able to bring the number guests you require.

What information will I need to give in the eVision graduation task?

In the eVision graduation task, you will be able to:

  • Confirm either your attendance or non-attendance

  • Update contact details for future Graduation correspondence

  • Apply for guest tickets

  • Request Invitation Letters to support you or your guests' visa application

  • Inform the University if you or any of your guests have additional requirements relating to disability

What will happen if I don't reply?

  • If you do not reply to your Graduation Invitation Task and you want to attend your ceremony, it will not be possible to accommodate you on the day as you will not have been allocated a seat.

  • Without replying to the invitation you are not able to request any guest tickets.

  • If you do not wish to attend but do not reply to both your invitation and certificate tasks, there will be a delay in the University being able to make your certificate available. The eVision task is available in the “my Course> View Award” tabs. If you have any problems logging in to your eVision account then please contact our student centre via email; student.centre@brunel.ac.uk or by phone on; +44 (0)1895 268268 and they will be able to assist you.

    If you do not request your certificate it will not be automatically produced.
