Attend your graduation ceremony
Information about ticketing, guests and regalia for your graduation ceremony.
I do not wish to attend the ceremony
If you do not wish to attend the ceremony you do not need to take any further action. You will graduate ‘in absentia’. All eligible students graduate automatically. Students graduating ‘in absentia’ will receive their academic documents in the post in April. Please ensure you keep your postal address updated by informing your College Registrar of any changes before 2 March 2018.
How to register to attend the ceremony

Collecting your regalia
You will collect your regalia on the day of your graduation ceremony. Please refer to your invitation email for collection times and locations.
Please present your graduand registration ticket when you come to collect your regalia. The person gowning you on the day of your graduation will check to make sure that your gown and hat are the right sizes.
Hired regalia must be returned to the collection point by 10pm after the conclusion of your ceremony.
