Order tickets

Our graduation ceremonies are a popular event in our academic calendar and we try to ensure a fair system with ticket allocation.

Students are guaranteed a maximum of two free guest tickets for family or friends if they respond to their invitation before the June deadline. Students do not need a ticket for themselves.

We do not recommend that children are taken to the ceremony, due to the length and formal nature of the proceedings.

Any child over the age of two will also require a separate guest ticket to attend.

The exact time and date that ticket sales open for each ceremony is shown in the table below. Please note that only students who have registered/confirmed attendance at graduation will be notified by email when this will be made available.

Important information

  • The tickets will be available on a first-come first-served basis.
  • We regret that we are unable to provide refunds for additional guest tickets.
  • We strongly advise against making expensive travel arrangements for guests on the expectation of extra tickets. These guests are welcome to enjoy the day with you, but if they do not have tickets for St David's Hall then they will not be admitted to the ceremony.
