Ordering your tickets

Ticket prices are as follows:

  • Graduand tickets are free of charge
  • Guest tickets are £13 each.  You may order up to 5 guest tickets.
  • Graduation Ball tickets are £17.50 each.  You may order up to 4 ball tickets.  The ball will be held on the evening of Friday 15 July in the Student Union quarter at the University. There is limited availability for these tickets.
  • Disabled parking spaces are available for students or guests who hold blue badge parking permits.  These are without charge but MUST be ordered when ordering your tickets.  You'll be required to display on your vehicle a blue badge parking permit AND the disabled parking permit we'll supply, on the day of the ceremony.  Please note that, due to the nature of the event, we receive a great deal of these requests.  While we are able to offer a reserved parking space close to venue we are unable to offer wide berth parking spaces for every blue badge holder.      

You can purchase up to 5 guest tickets and you'll also have the opportunity to request any additional tickets you may need. After 8th May we will assess ticket demand. If we've any additional ticket availability you will be notified via email and you'll be given a further opportunity to purchase additional requirements. You'll have to go online again to purchase these tickets. We advise you not to book flights and accommodation on the assumption that additional tickets will be available.  All additional ticket purchases must be completed by 15th May.

There will be a service at the Cathedral that all graduands and guests are invited to.  The service will be held on Sunday 10 July 2016 at 6pm. There is no ticket requirement for this thanksgiving service.

If you have any special requirements for the award ceremonies you can tell us online when you order.
