Get Ready For Your Graduation

Things you need to do before your ceremony:


1. Email the Graduation Team to enquire about late registration as online registration is now closed

2. Hire your gown

3. Book a place on your faculty celebration- further details will appear below. 


Ceremony Registration 

Online registration opens in October and closes on 1  November.  Guest tickets are only guaranteed for students who register during this period.

Guest tickets will be posted to UK home addresses at the end of November.  Tickets for students with non-UK addresses will be held for collection from the Ceremonies & Events Team before Graduation Day and from the Great Hall Ticket Office on Graduation Day.  

Gown Hire

In keeping with the academic nature of the occasion and ceremonial tradition, all students wishing to attend their graduation ceremony must wear the correct academic dress. Normal wear under gowns is a suit and tie for men and a plain dress or skirt/trouser suit for women.  Please note, plain colours look best under the robes.  We regret that graduating students who are not dressed smartly may be turned away from their ceremony.

All gowns are booked through the University's official robemakers, Ede and Ravenscroft, telephone 01223 861 854.  Gown hire will open in October.

Advance online robe hire will only be available until the beginning of December
