Winter graduation ceremonies, 12 - 16 December 2022 

The full schedule of ceremonies is now available to view. Registration for Winter Graduation 2022 is due to open on or shortly after 13 October.

Graduation is a significant milestone in every student’s life, looking back at all of your hard work and achievements here at Manchester. We’re looking forward to welcoming the graduating Class of 2022 onto campus to celebrate your achievements with your family and friends.

Our winter graduation ceremonies will take place in the Whitworth Hall from Monday 12 December to Friday 16 December 2022 for the Class of 2022, and registration emails will be sent out on or shortly after 13 October 2022. It is very important to let us know by registering whether you wish to attend or not so that we can make arrangements for you to receive your certificate if you choose to not attend graduation. 

Please take a look at the below information to help plan for these ceremonies.

Rail strikes in December 

National Rail services will be disrupted on the following days due to strike action which may disrupt travel to your ceremony. The RMT has announced strikes on:

  • 13-14 December

  • 16-17 December

Rail services will be cancelled or severely disrupted, and it is likely that there will be a very limited service on these days with no trains at all on some routes.

For graduands and guests due to attend Graduation on affected days, we advise you to be aware of potential travel issues and to plan accordingly to arrive on campus two hours before the start of your ceremony. You can keep up to date with the latest information via the National Rail website.
