Guest Tickets

All guests admitted to the graduation ceremony must be in possession of a ticket or you will not be permitted to enter. Each student attending their graduation ceremony will receive TWO guest tickets free of charge (graduating students will receive their own separate graduand ticket).

Extra Guest Tickets

Graduands can purchase up to FOUR additional guest tickets for the ceremony. Each additional guest ticket will cost £5.00. All Additional Guest Tickets will go on General sale on Thursday 28th September 2017 at 9.00am and close on Friday 29th September at mighnight through Ede and Ravenscroft, where students registered and ordered gowns and photography. All tickets are sold on a first come first served basis and are non-refundable. Purchased tickets will be available for collection on the day at the Ticket collection Desk in the Beacon Centre.

All additional guest tickets are available through the website only. There is no option to purchase tickets on campus or over the phone or on the day. All queries can be sent to

All students must ensure they have registered by the 27th September 2017.

Ceremonies are not suitable for young children under the age of 5 due to the length and formality of graduation. If you wish children to attend they must have a guest ticket and be accompanied by an adult guest (not a graduand). Under no circumstances are children allowed to sit with graduands. Please note there are no childcare facilities at King George’s Hall and prams and buggies are not permitted in the Hall and there is no storage.

Please note that on the day latecomers to the ceremony, including guests, will not be permitted entry under any circumstances as this will disrupt the formality of the proceedings.

Live Screening for Guests

If you have more guests than tickets, or young children under 5 for whom the ceremony is not suitable for, they are welcome to attend the live screening in the University Centre Lecture Theatre. This is not ticketed but seats are limited. The live screening is more informal so it is more suited to young children.
