Congratulations Class of 2016 - all you need to know about your big day

Our award ceremonies are a major highlight of the academic year, and a fantastic opportunity for you to celebrate your hard work and academic achievement with your family and friends.

These pages will be updated regularly to help you best prepare for your graduation day. You will find details about how to register to attend, purchasing guest tickets, and arrangements for gown hire and photographs - so please keep checking back.

Dates for your diary

Early July - Make sure all of your contact details are up to date via your e:Vision account, including your home address, as we will send out information about booking your graduation ceremony in mid-July. Keep checking your student email account, as we will also be sending you information via email.

Friday 15 July - To avoid any delay with booking your graduation ceremony, please make sure all your debts with us are settled by this date.

W/C 18 July - Keep an eye out for your invitation post card and email (which will be sent to your student email) as this will be sent out this week.

Monday 25 July - Booking process opens via your student e:Vision account. If you have any issues accessing e:Vision, please visit the contact us page. You have the opportunity to purchase up to three guest tickets during this period. We advise you book early to avoid disappointment.

Booking also opens for gown hire on this day. Please note that orders placed less than 21 days before your ceremony cannot be guaranteed.

Tuesday 6 September - Booking closes, so please don't miss out. If you have not confirmed your attendance by this date, we'll assume you do not wish to attend. Your guest allocation will also be made available to students who are attending.

Thursday 8 September. Bookings for extra guest tickets open via e:Vision. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we'll have additional guest tickets available for every ceremony. Any extra tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis. Please note that we are unable to keep a waiting list for guest tickets or consider any exceptional circumstance.

Prior to your ceremony - Be sure to have a look through these webpages, including the checklist and travel information to make sure your day runs as smoothly as possible. Don't forget to check out our merchandise page as some items can be purchased in advance and collected on the day. Whilst we do not present award certificates during the graduation ceremony you may be able to collect your certificate from a designated collection point on your graduation day, if your award is confirmed at an awards board in July or August 2016, please see the certificate page for more information.
