There is a helpful checklist and lots more information on the Planning your graduation page.
Don't worry, lots of people receive their certificates before graduation for job interviews or proof of study documentation.
Certificates are given out once graduates are off the stage.
If you are an undergraduate student studying a combined
degree with two subjects of equal weighting (joint award), you may be offered a
choice of ceremonies.
Choosing a ceremony will determine which Faculty you
graduate with. For example, if you are studying Economics (EC) and Politics
(PO) you will be given a choice of ceremonies when you register.
If you are studying a degree with major/minor fields, you
will be eligible to register to attend the ceremony for your major field only.
The names, courses and prizes of all graduates who have been awarded by Oxford
Brookes University appear in the Awards List for the ceremony they have
registered to attend.
