Registration and tickets

Tickets will go on sale on 1st August for graduation.

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 logo 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 2 guest tickets online.  Adult and Child (4-12) ticket prices have yet to be confirmed for 2017. 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 for any reason you need to take your pram into the main hall you will need to book a pushchair ticket and it WILL count as one of your two guest tickets.) 
  • If you are completing re-sits in August, you can still register and reserve your tickets. Re-sit results are published on Friday 15th September. 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 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.
