Apply for extra tickets
Although we schedule the graduation ceremonies to capacity there may be an opportunity for you to express an interest in up to two extra tickets. We allocate these on a first-come, first-served basis subject to availability. They are in very high demand, and there is no guarantee your application will be successful.
An extra ticket form will be live here from 9am on the 22 November and will close at 5pm on the 24 November.
Once it has closed we will allocate what extra tickets we have available and email you to notify you if you have been successful.
