Please be advised that we will stagger sending graduation ceremony invitations for specific graduation ceremonies depending on your School and Course. This means you may receive your invitation on a different date to your friends on other courses. If you feel you should’ve received your invitation, please log an iASK enquiry.
If you have any questions, please log an enquiry via the iAsk or the iBCU App. If you are a Class of 2020 graduate, you will still be able to access iAsk using your university account.
Make sure you're Graduation ready with our ceremony checklist.
