To be eligible to attend, your award must have been ratified by Examination Senate and your results communicated to you by Registry. Re-sits and extensions will impact your eligibility to attend Graduation. If you are unsure of your eligibility, please email

Any outstanding fees must have been cleared by 17 February 2023 in order to graduate. You can make a payment through the online payment portal or by contacting Student Fees on 01280 820250.

Confirm your place

All students who wish to attend the Graduation Ceremony must have completed the booking form by Friday 17 February 2023. A link will have been sent to your personal email address or included in your official results email. All bookings are subject to eligibility and availability. Bookings may close earlier due to ticket availability; space is limited due to venue size. If you have not received an invitation to book your place at Graduation by 31 January 2023 and you believe you are eligible for the Graduation Ceremonies, please email A detailed itinerary will be sent nearer the date of Graduation.


Space for the Graduation Ceremony is limited and students are permitted a maximum of two (2) guest tickets (subject to any COVID-19 restrictions in place). These tickets include entry to the Church and the Graduation Reception (drinks and canapés) following the Ceremony. Tickets for both the Graduation Ceremony and the Reception are free of charge.

We would not recommend bringing children under the age of five years old. Experience shows that they can become restless and uncomfortable at ceremonies. However, if you do opt to bring children, please note:

  • Children three years and over will need to have a ticket
  • Children under the age of three will not require a ticket but will be required to sit on an adult’s lap – this must not be the graduating student
  • Pushchairs cannot be taken into the Church but can be left outside the venue at your own risk
  • If children become unsettled or disruptive during the Ceremony, they will be asked to leave the Church.

Additional Tickets

We cannot guarantee that we will have additional seats available. Any additional tickets that may be available will be allocated after the online booking system has closed on Friday 17 February 2023. Please email after 17 February stating how many additional tickets you are looking to obtain and the reason why.

A live stream will also be available for people to view from home or in our Vinson Auditorium on our Hunter Street Campus.

Not Attending Graduation

Please complete the online sign up and confirm your non-attendance. You will have the option to request a copy of the Graduation programme if you so wish which will be sent after the ceremonies have taken place. Certificates are posted to graduates within 4 weeks of results being released and are not issued at the ceremony itself.
