Your graduation day is a very special end to your academic career, and we want to ensure that you have the best experience possible on this day.

Graduating students

If you are graduating and require any assistance throughout your day, we have plenty of staff on hand to help with the various elements of your graduation, both prior to and during the ceremony. Areas that we can assist are:

  • ticket collection
  • collecting gowns and getting dressed into robes
  • photography
  • student check-in
  • Cathedral and grounds access
  • admission into the Cathedral
  • collecting your degree.

If you have any concerns about your graduation, please do not hesitate to email or call the Corporate Events team who will happy to discuss any requirements you may have.


If your guests have any access or seating requirements, please do not hesitate to email the Corporate Events team, who will do their best to accommodate the request. Please let us know if your guests:

  • have use of a walking aid or wheelchair 
  • have any visual impairment.

Along with the date and time of your ceremony, please include as much information as possible in your email to the Corporate Events team. Closer to the day, we will email you further details of the arrangements made for the ceremony. All information submitted to the Corporate Events team is confidential.
