Graduation is a popular event; the ceremony venue has a fixed limit on the number of seats, and so we are only able to guarantee up to 2 free guest tickets per graduating student providing these have been requested via the Graduation eVision task. All guests will require a ticket to enter the auditorium.
In your "Graduation Task" you will be asked to indicate how many guests you would like to attend your ceremony, each of whom will require a guest ticket, the first two are free and the rest charged at £26 each. Please note guest seating is not assigned and children under the age of 7 are unable to attend the formal ceremony.
In order to share the available ceremony tickets as fairly as possible, we will carry out 2 guest ticket allocations:
You can pay for your tickets once the first allocation has taken place around lunchtime on Tuesday 23rd June 2020. 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 9am on Monday 29th June 2020 to pay for any allocated guest tickets. After this time, unpaid ticket allocations will be returned to the ticket pool for re-allocation.
- (Second Allocation) from 10am Tuesday 30 June 2020 to 8am on Thursday 2nd July 2020, you can request further guest tickets, which may be in addition to free guest tickets and those tickets you have already paid for.
- If you have requested tickets in the second allocation window, then please check your eVision account for your new allocation details after 2pm on Thursday 2 July 2020. You will be able to make payment for your second ticket allocation from this time until the day before your ceremony. On the day of your ceremony any allocated tickets not paid for will be removed from your account to be sold at the ceremony. The graduation task will also reopen for any other updates.
Any remaining tickets will be sold on the day when you register, on a first come, first served basis.
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.
