There are approximately 250 graduates with 700 guests, and the ceremony normally lasts around two hours. There is also a live screening of the ceremony.
The Graduation ceremony will be screened live in the Lakeside Theatre in Square 5 for guests without tickets to attend the ceremony or for latecomers who were not able to enter the Ivor Crewe Hall. Children under 5 are welcome to watch the ceremony in the Lakeside Theatre too so long as they are accompanied by an adult.
The service is free of charge and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. All ceremonies are filmed and recordings are produced for sale.
Your Award Certificate and Academic Transcript* can be collected after your ceremony has taken place from the Silberrad Square (opposite the Silberrad Student Centre). Please note that if you finished your studies before June, then your documents will have already been posted to you.
After the ceremony you can go to your Departmental Reception. At the reception, other graduates from your Department, School or Centre and their guests will be there, along with members of staff from your Department. Light refreshments are also provided. Each guest ticket provides entry to the Graduation ceremony and Departmental reception.
Alternatively, you can visit the University's catering outlets on campus for refreshments which will be available throughout the day and will need to be paid for individually.
