At the University of Portsmouth Online, we believe that graduation is not just a ceremony, but a celebration of your achievements.

Our graduation ceremony is an opportunity for you to celebrate your success with family, friends, and fellow graduates. It's a time to reflect on the challenges you overcame and the memories you made while studying with us. It marks the culmination of years of hard work, dedication, and perseverance.

At the ceremony, you will receive your degree certificate and have the opportunity to wear the traditional academic dress. You'll hear from inspiring speakers who will share their stories and offer advice for your future, and it's an excellent opportunity to network and connect with fellow graduates and professionals in your field.
