The decision to allow latecomers to be presented will be entirely at the discretion of the Graduation Co-ordinator whose decision is final.

If you are accepted as a late arrival, you will be given a card detailing your name and award, which you must keep safe. You will be presented at the end of the students awards and must stay seated in the place that you are directed to by the student centre staff, until you are asked to make your way to the front of the auditorium.

Children over the age of 3 may attend graduation, however children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. All guest, including children, will require a ticket. Tickets will be charged at £25 for over 14 year olds (including £1.50 facility fee) and £15 for 3 – 14 year olds (including £1.50 facility fee) 

Graduation is a ceremonial occasion which young children can find tedious. Out of respect for other guests we request that small children should be taken out of the auditorium if they become unsettled during the ceremony so as not to disturb proceedings. 

You will NOT be presented for your award unless you are wearing academic robes. You can order your gown from www.gownhire.co.uk.

Graduates may download PDF versions of their transcripts and results letter from the graduation page on eVision. They may also order hard copies of documents for which a charge is made. 

Information on how to access your guest tickets will be emailed to you on completion of purchase. 

Digital photos that are taken of each finalist as they are presented with their award on stage may be purchased online.

You will have until 8.30pm. on the last day of ceremonies to return your gown to the gowning room. 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.

Certificates may be requested via the graduation page on eVision. The usual processing time is 30 days. 

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.
