Graduations 2015

Congratulations on qualifying for your award!

We hope your graduation day will be a memorable experience for you and your guests. We want to make sure you get the most out of your day so have a look through the following information.

Graduation dates

June/July 2016

Ceremony dates will be available by the end of February 2016.


You must enrol to graduate, even if you're not attending the ceremony - you still need to enrol to graduate in absentia. Enrol to graduate using our online shop.

Deadline for enrolment

The deadline for enrolment is 6 May 2016.

Please don't wait until you have your results or until your award has been confirmed to enrol for graduation. If you fail to enrol before the deadline you may not be able to graduate.

Graduation costs

If you are attending graduation the cost for registering is £35.  If you're graduating in absentia the registration cost is £20.

The cost of the gown hire is £42.

Gown Hire

Make sure you hire your gown from Ede & Ravenscroft ahead of your ceremony. You'll need to do this at least three weeks before your ceremony.

Ede & Ravenscroft will have a limited number of gowns available to hire on the day, but there will be an additional late hire fee of £23.

Guest tickets

Admission to the ceremony for all guests is by ticket only. Every student will automatically receive two tickets for guests. The graduating student does not need a ticket.

Collect your tickets on the day of your ceremony from the Student Experience office on the ground floor of the McCance building.

Extra guest tickets

If extra tickets are available, they'll be distributed via a lottery. You can request entry into the lottery when you enrol to graduate.

The lottery determines whether a request has been successful and the decision is final. We can't run the lottery until all awards have been made and the exact number of students attending the ceremony confirmed. The final outcome will not be known until around a week before each ceremony.

Guests without tickets

We have a small area in the Barony Hall for guests without tickets where they can view the ceremony on a large screen. These seats aren't available for booking and are allocated on a first-come first-served basis so make sure your guests without tickets arrive as early as possible. 

Please note

If you make arrangements and incur costs such as travel or accommodation costs, on the assumption of obtaining extra tickets then you do so at your risk.

If your request for extra tickets is unsuccessful, the University does not accept responsibility for any costs incurred.
