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.

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.
More inclusive catering options
We have been working with Queen Mary's catering team to create more variety and value for money at your graduation ceremony - including launching a Graduation Food Festival at the July ceremonies.
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.
More souvenir options
We are working with our merchandise supplier Campus Clothing and with the Alumni Relations Team to improve their souvenir offerings and giveaways at graduation ceremonies.
