Graduation Registration

Registration for the Winter Graduation is now closed. 

Guest tickets

Each graduating student has been allocated a maximum of three guest tickets to buy.

Tickets for children under five are free of charge but must be included as part of the number of guest tickets you are allocated.  Children aged two and under, and who can sit on an adult's knee, do not need a ticket.

We should be able to offer extra guest tickets after registration closes - if this is the case, all graduands registered to attend will be notified by email with details on how to purchase them.

Please note that any unsold allocated guest tickets will be put back on general sale after the registration deadline and these tickets will be available on a first come first served basis.

Collecting tickets on campus

Registration desks will be set up on campus in the Old College Building, which will allow you to collect your invitation card, seat number and any guest tickets purchased.  Location and times can be found in the graduation information booklet.
