Not attending Winter Graduation?

It is still important to respond to the eVision "My Graduation" task, to confirm that you are not attending graduation. 

In addition, when you use eVision to check your results, please use the buttons to tell us if you want to collect your certificate from the Student Centre or to have your certificate posted and confirm the address we should use.

If you do not indicate how you wish to receive your certificate, it will not be produced without further contact with the University.

Please note non-attendance will not make you eligible for the next year's ceremonies.

How do I inform the University that I am not attending?

You can inform the University that you do not plan to attend your ceremony by completing your eVision Invitation Task.To respond to the task in eVision you will need your student ID number (printed on ID card) and then:

  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 menu bar at the top of the screen and click on “my Graduation”.

When will I receive my certificate if I do not attend Graduation?

When you view your award in eVision you are able to see when your award is due to be conferred and from what date your certificate will be available.

Please make sure that if you wish to collect your certificate or have it posted you make the appropriate request via eVision when you view your award. In order to make arrangements for the dispatch of your certificate you will need to complete an eVision task which 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.

Our UK mail is sent via 2nd class delivery and international mail is centrally dispatched via DHL. We are not able to provide tracking numbers for posted certificates.

Below are the times that DHL try to adhere to, however this is dependent on the weather/other major issues as is delivery by any mail service. 


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

Can I still attend Graduation if I have received my certificate?

You are still able to attend Graduation even if you have already received your certificate but you must respond via your eVision task to inform the University that you wish to attend.

I cannot attend and would like to defer to the next available ceremony?

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


Failing to arrive at Winter Graduation

If you complete your "My Graduation" task indicating that you plan to attend your ceremony but do not arrive, you will need to request us to post your certificate and confirm the address we should use (via your results page in eVision). We try our best to ensure we dispatch students certificates as quickly as possible. However, due to the volume of requests of we may not be able to post your certificate until January 2019.

Attending Winter Graduation

In most cases, your certificate will be issued to you during the ceremony.

When you use eVision to check your results, you should use the button to confirm collection at graduation.

Where awards are agreed much earlier than December, you may choose to request collection or postal delivery of your certificate. The date this will be available will be shown on your results page.

If you have already received your certificate, you will be given a letter of congratulations in a certificate folder when you cross the stage at your ceremony.

Please note that if you do not arrive for graduation, we will not be able to post your certificate until January 2019 (see above).
