Congratulations, you made it!

Whether you have completed your Undergraduate, Postgraduate taught, or Postgraduate Research qualification, there are some tasks you may want to do before your graduation date. At the end of your studies, your access to the University network and services will cease. There are, however, some services that we can offer you beyond graduation but due to GDPR legislation, you will have to give us your consent to continue using them. This page gives you a list of 5 actions we recommend you take BEFORE GRADUATION.
