Before Graduation


What do I need to do before my Graduation?

The invitation will be in the form of an eVision task. It is as important to the University that you reply if you do not wish to attend as if you do wish to attend.

If you have not received an invitation by the end of March 2018 please contact awarding@brunel.ac.uk.

Can I change my mind about attending Graduation?

Yes. You can edit your response within the eVision graduation task until the deadline of 25th June.

However, the task will still be available to edit until the day before your ceremony should your circumstances change after this date. Be aware that any changes made after 25th June 2018 may impact your day’s arrangements.

What will happen if I don't reply?

If you do not reply to your Graduation Invitation Task and want to attend your ceremony, it will not be possible to accommodate you on the day as you will not be allocated a seat in the ceremony and your certificate will not be produced for you to collect.

Without replying to the invitation you are not able to request any guest tickets.

Why do I need to hire a gown?

If you intend to attend your ceremony you must wear an official gown of the University that equates to your academic achievement.

University gowns are provided by Ede & Ravenscroft. For information on how to hire or buy your gown please visit the Gowns and Dress Code section of the website.

Do I have to pay for my guest tickets before my ceremony?

You can pay for your tickets once the first allocation has taken place around lunchtime on Tuesday 26th June 2018. You will then be able to pay for them online through the eVision task or via the Cash Office. An email containing further instructions will be sent once the first ticket allocation has taken place.

You will then have until the 10am on Monday 9th July 2018 to pay for any allocated guest tickets. After this time, unpaid ticket allocations will be returned to the pool for re-allocation;

- (Second Allocation) from Tuesday 10th July 2018 to 7am on Thursday 12th July 2018, you can request additional guest tickets in addition to those tickets you have already paid for.

- At this stage, please check your eVision account for second allocation details. You will be able to make payment for this second allocation from Thursday 12th July 2018 until the day before your ceremony.

All these activities will be offered via eVision, which will indicate the numbers of tickets allocated to you, any you have paid for and second allocation tickets approved. It is important that you check for email and text reminders during this period.

Visa Requirements
