The Graduation team listened
Longer registration period
We kept graduation registrations open for longer so more students had the chance to apply in time.
More affordable ticket options
We decreased the price of 'Live Relay' tickets from £15 to £5 so more of your guests can attend.
Improved seat allocation system
We changed the way we allocate seats to make it more likely you will be sitting with course mates.
More examples of how the Graduation team listened
Increased transparency in graduation spending
We created an infographic to explain how we fund our ceremonies and where the money is spent.
Degree certificates available at ceremonies
You can now pick up your degree certificate during your undergraduate graduation ceremonies.

Our new Gradbot 'Bob' is available to answer your Graduation queries 24/7 on the Graduation website.
Improved communication with students
We now send all Graduation communications to both your university and personal email addresses as per your student record.

We are working with Queen Mary’s catering team to launch a Graduation Food Festival serving a wider variety of food and non-alcoholic drinks.
Greater support during ceremony
We now have a second Stage Marshall in each ceremony to help fit your gown and prepare you before you go on stage.
