Students are advised that they are guaranteed a maximum of two free guest tickets for family or friends who wish to attend the Graduation ceremony. Students do not need a ticket for themselves. We do not recommend that children are taken to the ceremony, due to the length and formal nature of proceedings. Any child over the age of two will also require a separate guest ticket to attend.

All tickets for guests will be available for collection from CITY HALL on the day of your ceremony.
