We're extremely proud of all our students, and to recognise their achievements we hold celebration events each year. View our Events page for details of upcoming celebration events.

Graduates' Ceremony

Our Graduates' Ceremony is a celebration of Manx Graduates (students who have completed a higher education qualification - which is level and above). The event is held every year at the Royal Hall at the Villa Marina and is open to UCM students as well as Manx Residents who are studying at other universities by cannot attend the graduation at their own university.

The UCM Awards

This annual event, also usually held in the Royal Hall at the Villa Marina, is a celebration of the achievements of students completing a 16+, Sixth Form  or Apprenticeship course (Further Education). Students are encouraged to bring friends and family to the event to celebrate with them. As well as course-specific awards, we have a number of cross-college awards including the prestigious Student of the Year and Apprentice of the Year awards.
