Guest tickets

Find out all you need to know about ordering tickets for guests to attend our graduation ceremonies.

How many guest tickets will I get?

All graduands can request up to three guest tickets free of charge for their graduation ceremony. This is done as part of your graduation application. You do not need to request a ticket for yourself.

Please email before the graduation application deadline if you would like to make an update to the amount of free guest tickets requested. Any remaining guest tickets will be released for sale once the graduation application deadline has passed.

If your guests have any mobility or special requirements, please email

Where do I collect the guest tickets?

Your guest tickets will be given to you when you register at the Usher Hall on the day of your ceremony.

How do I reserve additional guest tickets?

Additional guest tickets will be available to reserve from mid June 2024. Graduands will be advised via their student email account when tickets are available for reservation and how to reserve them. These tickets are £15 and subject to availability.

Additional guest tickets will be available for payment and collection at the Usher Hall on the day of your ceremony. Please note that cash payments will not be accepted.

Children can attend the ceremony, but you should note that it may not be suitable for very young children.

Children under two do not pay for a ticket. Children over the age of two will require a purchased ticket due to the Usher Hall's health and safety regulations.
