Additional information for students

Please take a look at the information below if you have any more questions about preparing for your graduation ceremony:

Buying additional tickets

At the moment guest tickets are limited to a maximum of 3 tickets per graduate or a private box that seats 4. Once registration has closed we will look at the numbers and potentially open up more on a first come first served basis. If this is the case, students will be informed when available.

Live streaming of ceremonies for guests without tickets

The ceremonies will be live streamed and available through UAL social media channels and our Graduation webpage ,which anyone with or without a ticket can watch.

Finding information for free robing

Students who are eligible for free robing will receive an email in due course, so please keep an eye on your emails.

If you have questions over your eligibility for free robing, please contact the Hardship Fund team.

Requesting a refund if you’ve already paid for robes

Please contact Ede & Ravenscroft directly to organise a refund for your robes.
