Eligibility for GraduationPass Eligibility

You will be eligible to attend graduation if:

  • You completed your studies during 2019/20
  • Your name appeared on a pass list
  • You have no outstanding debts to the College.

All eligible students studying at Bradford College will be invited to attend. Invitations will be sent by email to the email address that is on the student portal – please check and update this if it has changed. Alternatively, email the Graduation Team with your student ID number, name and the email address you would like to use for correspondence and we will update it for you.

If you haven’t received an email by the middle of September, but think you should be graduating this year, don’t panic! Just email the Graduation Team and we will look into it for you.

Information for debtors

If you are in debt to the College then you will not be able to attend your graduation ceremony. It is Bradford College’s policy to withhold degree certificates until the debt is settled in full.

If you are unsure whether you owe the College any money, then you can contact the HE Student Finance team on 01274 088503 with your student number to check your account for outstanding debt.


In the event that any or all of the graduation ceremonies have to be cancelled, rescheduled or postponed due to circumstances beyond the control of Bradford College, we cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred by the said cancellations, rescheduling or postponement.

Bradford College graduation ceremonies are considered to be public events. There will be a College photographer present and by attending, you give us permission to use any general crowd photos you appear in for marketing purposes.


The College does not accept responsibility and expressly excludes liability to the fullest extent permitted by law for:

  • Any loss or damage to any personal property left unattended during an event organised by the College unless caused by the negligence of the College or its employees; or
  • Death or any personal injury suffered by you at a College event unless caused by the negligence of the College or its employees.

Data Protection

The General Data Protection Regulations mean that we are only able to discuss personal and individual student related matters with the student. Graduation Team staff are not at liberty to divulge information or take instruction from a third party, even if that third party is a family member.

As a graduating student, even if you will not be attending a graduation ceremony, your name and course details will be published in the graduation programme which will be handed out at the ceremony.

Your name, student number, award and ceremony date and time will be shared with our robing and photography partner, William Northam. This is to ensure that you hire the proper gown and hood for your award and that they are ready for the correct ceremony.

Your name may also be included in other promotional materials and merchandising produced by the college.

There is an option for your name and course details to be omitted from all graduation materials by sending an email to [email protected] with the subject line PRIVACY and ensuring you include your student number and name in the body of the email.

Please note your degree classification will not be published. It will simply be your name listed underneath your programme title. Students who receive a first class Bachelor degree or distinction at Masters are highlighted in the graduation programme.
