You will have until 8.00pm on the last day of ceremonies to return your gown to the marquee at the venue. If it is kept after that time then you will need to contact Ede and Ravenscroft direct regarding their returns policy / additional charges (as the contract is between you and the gowning company not the university). The university WILL NOT return on your behalf.

Each ceremony lasts approximately 1 ½ hours.

Guests should arrive in good time. At least 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony with a valid ticket. Guests arriving once the ceremony is underway may NOT be permitted to enter the auditorium until a suitable break in the proceedings. They may also be asked to occupy alternative seats so other guests are not disturbed.

If you can no longer attend the ceremony but still want the certificate, you will have the option to request your certificate through e:Vision. (you can do this via the graduation page on e:Vision after the ceremonies have taken place).

All certificates for people requesting through e:Vision will then start to be sent out after all the ceremonies have taken place - so students should receive their certificate within 4 weeks of the ceremony.

Yes, students must provide information on their guests needs (e.g. BLS interpreter, wheelchair users) when the guest tickets are purchased. If information has not been provided you must contact the university as soon as possible via e:Vision helpdesk.
