Registration for Postgraduate Graduation 2019

If you are eligible to graduate you can register as soon as you receive the email invitation to attend your ceremony and buy guest ceremony tickets and guest department reception tickets for your guests. Registration for the graduation ceremonies closes at midnight (UK time) on Friday 8 March 2019.  Regretfully we are unable to accept registrations after this point.  

You will receive an email from the Graduation team inviting you to register for graduation. Please note that you will be unable to register for graduation until you have received this email. You can also register on this website. 

When you register, you can complete the following tasks:  

Register for your graduand tickets

Graduand ceremony tickets and graduand department reception tickets are complimentary.  

You must register for your graduand tickets before midnight (UK time) on Friday 8 March 2019 in order to attend. 

Register for your graduand ceremony and graduand department tickets

Buy your guest ceremony and guest department reception tickets  

You can purchase up to two guest ceremony tickets for your ceremony and up to two guest department reception tickets for your department reception which takes place after your ceremony.

Guest ceremony tickets only are available to purchase from the Royal Albert Hall and are £25 each. You will be directed to the Royal Albert Hall website during the registration process. Guest ceremony tickets are posted to the billing address of the card used to pay, can be collected on the day from the Door 12 ticket office or you can request e-tickets which can be printed at home. 

Guest department reception tickets are only available to purchase on the registration portal and are £15 each.

Children and babies

Guest ceremony tickets and guest department reception tickets must be purchased for children aged over two years old if you wish them to attend. Postgraduation Graduation is a formal occasion so may not be suitable for very young children.  

Tell us about any special requirements

If you need to book a disabled car parking space on campus, or if you or your guests have any special requirements, let us know during the registration process. Read more about accessibility and special requirements at Postgraduate Graduation.

Additional guest ceremony tickets 

Once registration has closed additional guest ceremony tickets and guest department reception tickets may become available to purchase. More information will be provided about availability of additional tickets by Friday 15 March 2019, with any additional tickets available to purchase from Monday 18 March 2019 onwards.  Please note guest department reception tickets sell out quicker than guest ceremony tickets, therefore you are not guaranteed the same number of tickets for both the department reception and ceremony.  

Guest ceremony seating 

On Postgraduation Graduation day, you will not sit with your guests. Guests seating is allocated inside the Royal Albert Hall and seat numbers will be indicated on guest ceremony tickets.  You will be seated with other graduands.
