Ceremony 2 is for students graduating from the Institute of Education Postgraduate Taught (Class of 2022).

Please note, gowning takes place at the Pride Park Stadium, and registration takes place at the Arena. All graduates must register at the Arena prior to the ceremony in order to be able to take part. Late arrivals must go directly to registration at the Arena and not to the Pride Park Stadium (alternative arrangements will be made for your gown collection).

Please note the timings below, and allow plenty of time for your travel and parking. We also recommend that you prepare for the weather conditions, as there is a two to three-minute walk between Pride Park Stadium and the Arena. 

For graduates and guests with mobility requirements, please contact graduation@derby.ac.uk

Guests are welcome to accompany you to the Pride Park Stadium for gowning and photography.
