Register your graduation choice

We’re looking forward to welcoming the Class of 2024 to celebrate with your family and friends

All finalist students need to register a graduation choice and update personal details by Friday 17 May. Registration is available from Monday 22 April 2024. 

Your Graduation options are

  • To attend Graduation in July 2024
  • To attend this year, in December 2024 
  • To attend next year, in July 2025
  • Not attend any Graduation, known as in absentia

July 2024 

  1. Graduation Ceremony, in person. You have the option to attend Graduation in person, on campus, in the Great Hall. The registration pages is open from 22 April and you will need to login and register using Student Services. Detailed instructions are listed below.
  2. Virtual Graduation, online. If you prefer, you can attend a Virtual Graduation online. This will be held on Monday 29 July, with a second date provisionally planned for Tuesday 30 July. Anyone unable to attend in person can select to join in this way. To choose this option, register using the online Virtual Graduation registration form instead of Student Services.
  3. Relaxed Graduation, in person. We are also planning a Relaxed Graduation this July, on campus. This will be held on Friday 26 July. This experience is designed for students or guests with learning difficulties, autism, social anxiety, or sensory processing difficulties, but is open to any students or guests who may find this alternative format more comfortable, subject to availability. To choose this option, register using the online Relaxed Graduation registration form instead of Student Services.

December 2024 or July 2025, or in absentia

To attend Graduation in December 2024 or July 2025, register your choice for this using Student Services. 

If you do not wish to attend any Graduation, you must also let us know your choice for this using Student Services.  

Attendance and Certificates 

Due to the planning and organising involved, we ask that students only register to attend one event. It is not possible to attend both a virtual and in person graduation. Register your choice by Friday 17 May 2024. 

You can find more information online about certificates with details on how and when you will receive your degree documents.

Tickets and gowns

When you register for an in person ceremony, you have the option to add up to two guest tickets as part of the registration. Tickets are only needed for entry to the ceremony itself. Other locations on campus are open to all guests if they are not able to get a guest ticket for the Great Hall. We offer an application process for extra guest tickets after registration has closed, usually open for a few days in the month before graduation starts.

To order a gown after you have registered your graduation choice, you will need a gown access code. This will be sent to you in your confirmation email. You may need to wait up to five working days to receive this after you register your graduation choice.
