Graduation – what do you need to do?

25 June 2019

3 mins

Graduation is an exciting time but it can also be a very busy so we’ve put together a list of things to do to make sure you get everything done before the big day!

1. Check the dates

There will be a number of different graduation ceremonies happening from 16th July until 19th July. The date of your ceremony will vary depending on your course so make sure you know when it is! Find the list of all ceremony dates here.

2. Book your attendance

You need to book your attendance by 28th June. If you don’t you may not be given a place in the ceremony. Everyone is guaranteed 2 extra tickets for guests but if you would like to request more you will be able to do this a week before graduation. Book your attendance now.

3. Data consent

Check your data consent preferences! It is important to do this so that your name can be included in the graduation programme and on other promotional materials. If you haven’t given consent you will be contacted by the graduation office. Find out more about data consent here.

4. Additional needs

It is important to let the graduation office know if you or your guests have any additional needs, for example, assistance crossing the stage, as they will do their best to provide this for you. You can email them here:

5. Hire your gown/hat

Graduands are required to wear full academic dress, gown, hood, and cap, which can be hired from our official gown supplier, Ede and Ravenscroft Ltd. The colours and style will vary depending on your course and degree, so make sure to order the right one! This needs to be done as soon as possible, order yours here.

6. Results released

Your results will be published online here two days after your programme board, usually around the start of July. Your academic fees need to be paid in order for your results to be released. If the results page states that your results have not been published this is because your balance has not been cleared, you must contact the Finance Office immediately.

7. E-tickets are sent and additional tickets available

About a week before graduation you will receive your E-tickets and the availability of additional tickets will be confirmed. These will be released on a first-come-first-served basis. However, a webcast will also be available in a lecture theatre for guests who cannot be accommodated in the main venue.

8. Lunch/Dinner/Hotels

Family and friends will travel from various distances to come to graduation, so this might mean that they need somewhere to stay! We have a selection of options on campus here, but would recommend not leaving booking to the last minute! Similar, if you want somewhere to eat lunch or dinner, make sure to check out the options on campus and in town, but book soon!
