  • Tickets for all ceremonies are subject to availability. Queen Mary University of London reserves the right to withdraw tickets from sale before the booking deadline, if necessary. You are strongly advised to book as early as possible.

Extra guest tickets

Each student is offered the chance to purchase two guest tickets initially, if they book before the deadline.

If there are any additional guest tickets available then students will be offered a fair opportunity to purchase these. Please note, students who join the waiting list after the booking deadline will not be entitled to two guest tickets initially. 

Extra tickets are not guaranteed and you should not make travel arrangements for guests who do not have confirmed ceremony tickets. Queen Mary University of London will not reimburse any money you spend on travel, accommodation or other costs associated with guests who are subsequently not able to attend due to lack of extra tickets.
