Registration and tickets

Graduation will take place on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th October. The final format of each ceremony, ie which course graduates in which ceremony, will not be finalised until July 2020.

Guest tickets will be available to be purchased from 3rd August - 30th September.

Please look out for updates via your student email as well as the graduation pages on the website.

Information about registering for your ceremony and purchasing guest tickets:

  • All final year students wishing to attend their ceremony WILL need to register to attend their ceremony via the Graduation Portal.
  • To log on to the portal you will need to enter your date of birth and your student number (the University is NOT allowed to disclose these details to anyone but the student in question) 
  • Once you have registered you will be able to purchase up to 2 guest tickets online.  An adult ticket will cost £TBC per person (for 12 yrs and over) and a child (5-11) ticket will cost £TBC per person. Infants (0-4) are free to attend and no ticket will need to be purchased, they WILL however need to sit on an adults lap. (Pushchairs and buggies will not be allowed in the main hall as it requires the removal of seats, there will be a buggie point to leave any prams or pushchairs near the registration desk.) 
  • If you are completing re-sits in August, you can still register and reserve your tickets. Re-sit results are published in September 2020. On the successful completion of your course you will need to purchase your reserved tickets before the 30th September. If you do not purchase them by this date they will be reallocated.
  • Initially you will be able to purchase up to 2 guest tickets. Any unsold tickets will be released in October. You will then have the opportunity to purchase further guest tickets on a first come first served basis, should you wish to.
  • When you purchase your ticket/s you will be sent a message from Sage pay with a unique reference number, this is the number you will need to quote when entering any discussions about ticket purchases.  You will also be sent an email from the University stating the number of tickets you have purchased; this will be your confirmation of purchase. If you do not receive BOTH of these emails it means your purchase was NOT successful and you will need to try again.
  • Tickets will be available for collection when you arrive at the Plymouth Guildhall for your ceremony.
  • If you have an questions about purchasing tickets please email
