Graduands do not require a ticket but they will be expected to register and collect a seating card when they arrive at the venue. 

Guest tickets

Information regarding guest tickets will be updated in due course.

Extra Tickets

There is no guarantee that extra tickets will become available for any of the Winter 2019 graduation ceremonies.

If extra tickets do become available, the website will be updated on Monday 11 November to advise which ceremonies have available tickets for purchase.

Subject to availability, you may purchase extra guest tickets only if you applied to graduate in person by the application deadline date of Thursday 31 October 2019.


Children are welcome to attend, however you should note that graduation ceremonies may not be suitable for very young children. Your party may be asked to sit at the end of an aisle or near an exit so that the child can be taken outside should they become restless. If children of age 5 or under require their own seat, a ticket must be requested for them.

Special arrangements

If you or your guests have special requirements, e.g. a wheelchair user, vision/hearing impaired or claustrophobic etc, or if they have very young children, please indicate this in the special arrangements section of online graduation application. Please note that only Guide Dogs, Hearing Dogs and Assistance Dogs are permitted on campus. Car parking will be available on campus in selected areas, including an area of accessible parking for people who are disabled or with limited mobility. These will be clearly signposted from the main gate.

Guests with mobility issues

Please note that entry to the James Watt Centre is accessible.  When you collect your guest tickets, please advise a member of staff at the desk and an usher will be called to assist you into the auditorium.
