Extra Tickets

Students are able to register their interest for extra tickets at the time of booking. Once bookings close students that registered interest will be informed if additional tickets are available and sent instructions on how to book. We may have tickets available on the day to purchase on a first come first served basis. If any extra tickets are available to purchase this will be communicated to students closer to the ceremony date.

By making a booking for any ceremony, you and all ticket-holders agree to the Terms and Conditions outlined.

Students need to book a place regardless of having sat exams or received results.

Although we endeavour to contact all eligible students via email with booking information, we cannot guarantee this as there a number of reasons as to why an email may not reach you. All information sent via email will be replicated our website so please use this to obtain the most up to date information. If you wish to check your eligibility to attend the graduation ceremonies in April please contact Student Records on
