Here are our top tips for enjoying your graduation day.

1. Arrive in plenty of time

It is recommended you arrive two and a half hours before your ceremony. Please make sure you read information about travel and parking.

2. Check-in at our registration desks and collect your seating card and any pre-purchased guest tickets.

For information about the location of the check-in desks, please visit Peterborough, Chelmsford or Cambridge. Please bring with you your Graduation confirmation from eVision.

3. Pick up your pre-ordered academic dress (gown, hood and mortar board).

Photography is based at the same location as your gown collection.
