Before Your Ceremony

Everything you need to know

1. Confirm whether or not you wish to attend

The online Graduation registration system is now open. Once you have registered your attendance via the online booking system, you should then order your academic gown, and if required, photography.

If you are not planning to attend your graduation ceremony, you need to confirm this to us by logging in to the registration system.

Please note: Once a ceremony reaches capacity we will have to close this for any new registrations. We will offer you an opportunity to attend an alternative ceremony.

2. Order your academic gown and photography

All Graduands must wear their academic gown. This can be hired from our supplier Ede & Ravenscroft. You can also book your photography in advance to save you time and money on the day.

3. Guest Tickets

When registering your attendance on the registration system, and provided you register before 11th May, you will also be able to reserve your two free guest tickets. All students are allocated up to 2 free guest tickets when registering before this date.

Once the closing date has passed (11th May), we will release all unsold tickets on 31st May, and you can log back into the graduation booking system to purchase any extra ones at £11 per ticket. Please note that the demand for extra guest tickets is very high and we cannot always meet this. We CANNOT guarantee that additional guest tickets will be available to purchase for each ceremony.

Additional guest tickets for some ceremonies will be available to purchase from Thursday 31ST May. Additional tickets will only be available for ceremonies that are not yet fully booked.

4. Receive your Graduation Ticket

An email, which is to be used as your Graduation ticket, will be sent to you in late June. You should check this website regularly for further updates.

Your guest tickets will be collected when you attend Registration at the Midland Hotel on the day of your ceremony. You should attend Registration at least 2 hours before the scheduled start time of your Ceremony.

Plan your Graduation celebration and show your guests the fantastic city of Manchester. You may also want to make use of some offers provided by the venues we use for our graduation activities.
