Important things you need to know
What's a 'graduand'?
The term 'graduand' refers to anyone who is about to receive an academic degree. Once a graduand has been presented to the Principal, they become a graduate.
You must have cleared any academic debts with the College or University of London (such as tuition fees) by Friday 29 November 2019 or you’ll not be able to take part in graduation.
Registration, gown hire, photography, additional ticket sales (subject to availability), the cloakroom and the ceremonies themselves will be taking place in the Windsor Building.
Graduands must assemble in Windsor Room 0-02/03 to be arranged in order of presentation before the start of the ceremony.
Attendance and tickets
You must confirm your attendance and book your ticket online.
Our student registration and ticket booking website will open at noon on Tuesday 8 October and will close at midnight on Sunday 10 November. You’ll initially be able to book up to two complimentary guest tickets. These tickets aren’t guaranteed and are subject to availability on a first come, first served basis.
After Sunday 10 November, any remaining tickets will be sold online during a second booking period which will open at noon on Tuesday 19 November. Additional tickets will cost £15 each. Please refer to our ticket page and Graduation Policy for further information.
As part of the registration and booking process you'll be asked to confirm whether you'll be bringing a child under the age of five to your ceremony. Pushchairs and buggies aren't permitted in the venues.
Graduation ceremonies are formal in nature and young children may become restless or unsettled during the ceremony. To avoid any disruption to the ceremony, guests with very young children will be asked to sit near the exit so they can easily leave the venue if they need to do so.
- Children under five years of age don't require a guest ticket but must be seated on an adult's lap in the venue.
- Children aged five years and over will need to have their own guest ticket. There are no child concessions for the purchase of additional guest tickets.
As part of the registration and booking process, you’ll be asked to confirm whether any of your guests have additional access needs. You’ll be contacted before graduation to discuss these needs so that we can reserve appropriate seating for your guests.
Disabled parking is provided on campus.
You won't receive your degree certificate during the ceremony. These are produced by the Diploma Production Office in London and will be posted to the forwarding address we have on record for you. Due to the large number of certificates that need to be produced, it can take between three to six months for you to receive your certificate.
Please make sure you update your forwarding address on the Personal details tab on Campus Connect.
