FAQ

Please use the link in your invitation email to complete the reply form to confirm that you are attending the Ceremonies. Alternatively the link to the form is here. You can also let us know if you choose to defer to December 2022 using the form.

You can use the microsoft form to let us know you do not want to attend ceremonies in July and confirm you want to defer to Winter 2022.

Please note, from collating previous responses we expect less interest in the Winter 2022 ceremonies, if you wish to attend the ceremonies in December, you will likely be processing with the Graduands from your faculty for that period. If there is a large demand deferring to Winter we may hold separate ceremonies in addition.

Once everyone has responded, after form closes on 4th April 2022, we will be able to provide a schedule of the Ceremonies and confirm the exact time / date your ceremony will take place as this will depend on the number of Graduates attending from each faculty and department.

All Graduates will be allocated two tickets in the first instance.

Additional tickets are usually capped at 2 per person (total 4 including the original allocation).

A screening venue is normally available for our ceremonies and we will be broadcasting the ceremonies online, additonal guests and family you bring onto campus can watch the ceremonies from the screening venue. You will be able to request screening venue tickets when you register for the ceremonies and collect your gown on the day. 

Please note that you can bring a maximum number of seven guests with you into the photography suites on the day.

From April we ask that everyone considers the safety of others and takes a sensible approach: if you are feeling unwell, with a cold or flu-like symptoms, please stay at home to recover.

The Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 will have their own dedicated ceremonies. We will hold the same number of graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2022 as normal.
