What should I do next?

How many guest tickets can I apply for?

Space for the Medical School Graduation Ceremony is limited and students are permitted a maximum of three guest tickets. These tickets include entry to the Church and the Graduation Reception in the marquee following the Ceremony. Tickets for both the Graduation Ceremony and the Reception in the marquee are free of charge.

If you or any of your guests have a disability or special access requirements then please let the Graduation Office know in advance.


You must sign-in with the Registry in the Vinson Building on Graduation day. You cannot be presented to the Vice-Chancellor unless you have done so.

Tickets can be collected in person at the times stated above and admission to the Ceremony and Graduation Reception is strictly by ticket only, for graduands and guests. It is important that you confirm your attendance to avoid disappointment.

Please ensure that you arrive at the Church at least 30 minutes before your Ceremony is due to start.

The Ceremony

Seating in the Church is strictly on a first come, first served basis. No children under the age of 5 will be permitted in the Church. However, they are welcome in the marquee for the reception following the Ceremonies but will require a marquee admission ticket.

There is no admittance into the Church once the Ceremony has started and latecomers will not be able to participate in the ceremony. It will also not be possible to admit graduands to the Church if they have not signed in with Registry in the Vinson Building and collected their academic dress.
