Graduation Ceremonies 2023

Graduation 2023

All ceremonies take place in the Great Hall, Mile End Campus

You must arrive at Mile End two hours before your ceremony is due to commence. This is to ensure you allow enough time to check in, collect your cap and gown and be seated in the Great Hall 30 minutes before the ceremony is due to start. All students must have a pre-booked graduand ticket and they will not be able to take part in the ceremony without it. 

Check back later for a step-by-step guide on what to do before, during, and after your ceremony

What to Wear

Graduation ceremonies are formal occasions and we request graduands and their guests dress appropriately. Academic dress is compulsory to attend the ceremonies.

Jeans and trainers are not acceptable forms of dress for a graduation ceremony.


Access Requirements 

All of the venues used for graduation ceremonies are fully accessible. It is the responsibility of the graduate to inform the Events and Ceremonies Team of access requirements when booking to attend the ceremony.

Other Info

Please be aware that if you do not wish to shake hands with the Principal on religious grounds when walking on stage, you should carry your graduation ceremony programme in your hand as you cross the stage and he will act appropriately.
