Ceremonies 2019

Watch Graduation Live

Graduation is a special day and we recognise that not all of your friends and family can attend in person so our graduation ceremonies are professionally filmed and broadcast live. Our live broadcast is hosted by Visions Unlimited and can be accessed on the Visions Unlimited website.

Your invitation and tickets

You will receive your Graduation Ceremony invitation by email at your University email account. Once you receive this email, you will be able to book your place and purchase any guest tickets you require.

Find out more about your tickets and how to complete the booking process on our How to book page.

Special requirements

Both of our venues are fully accessible with spaces available for wheelchair users.

If you or your guests require a space for a wheelchair or have other special requirements, please indicate this when booking your tickets, as wheelchair seating is limited. A member of the ceremonies team will then contact you if necessary.

Visa support

We can provide you with a letter, which can be used in support of a visa application/extension for you or your guests. However, we cannot include your guests' names, as the university is not responsible for inviting them.

Please email your request to [email protected] no later than a month before the date of your ceremony.

The letter will confirm your eligibility to attend the ceremony and the date and time of the event. If you have reserved your tickets we will also include this information.

The letter will be emailed to you as a PDF document, a hard copy can be provided on request. Please note requests may take up to three working days to process.
