 PG students looking into audience

Guaranteed tickets

Two guest tickets are guaranteed for each graduand attending, if requested at the time of registration. This is in addition to your own ticket of admission as a graduand.

These two guest tickets are only guaranteed if you request them when you register for graduation and your registration is received by the deadline which is to be confirmed nearer the time. 

Any advance arrangements (e.g: travel or accommodation) are made entirely at your own risk.


Additional guest tickets

It is highly unlikely that tickets over and above the two guaranteed will be available. However, if further tickets are available, you will be notified via email - dates to be confirmed nearer the time

Details to be confirmed nearer the time. 


Special seating arrangements

Please inform us of any specific access requirements you or your guests may have, or special assistance that you or your guests may require (e.g: printed material, hearing loop), by completing the relevant section of the form when you register for graduation. Please give us as much notice as possible to accommodate special arrangements.

If you require the loan of a wheelchair for the day, your local British Red Cross Association should be able to assist. Visit their website at: www.redcross.org.uk


Children at graduation ceremonies

Due to the length and formal nature of proceedings we do not recommend bringing young children to the ceremony. Children over the age of three will require a ticket for the ceremony. You may wish to watch the ceremony live in the Auditorium in the Students' Union, where the atmosphere is informal and no tickets are required.

Due to health and safety restrictions, prams should be left in the complimentary cloakroom in the Octagon.
