Graduation might feel far way, but it's good to get everything organised now. We’ve highlighted some important deadlines so you don't miss out.

4 May 2018 – deadline for registering and buying tickets

Don’t wait for your results - register yourself as soon as possible so you can attend the ceremony and don’t get caught out by any late fees.

  • We recommend registering and buying your tickets at the same time, so do check with your family or friends before you get started.
  • If you register after 4 May you will be subject to an additional £60 late fee on top of any ticket purchases.
  • You’ll need your student ID to log into the registration website.

Register and buy tickets

8 June 2018 - Final registration and ticket change deadline

We may not be able to accept your registration after this date and if we can, you will be subject to a £90 late fee on top of any ticket purchases. You also won’t be able to change ticket allocations or refund any ticket purchases after this date.

30 June 2018 - deadline for hiring an academic robe

All students must wear the official University of the Arts London academic robes provided by Ede and Ravenscroft. After this date you’ll be subject to a late booking fee and there may not even be a robe available in your size!

Early bird prize draw

Register by 17:00 on 30 March 2018 and you’ll be entered in a prize draw!

Students from each ceremony can win one of these great prizes:

  • a private box at Royal Festival Hall seating four guests
  • a standard graduation photography pack
  • one academic robe at no cost

The Awards Ceremonies team will let if you know if you’re one of the lucky winners after the draw.

Registration for research degrees

We will send you an invitation email to register. However, if you have received your result letter and haven’t received your invitation, please contact including your name/student id and mobile number.

As completion of study varies, there may be some flexibility regarding registration deadlines. However, you are still subject to the same robing deadline as other UAL Graduates.

A friendly reminder

The Graduation team are responsible for making sure the Awards Ceremonies run as smoothly as possible, and that you can celebrate your success without any issues. These deadlines are very important to help us and students plan ahead, which is why it is necessary to impose late charges if you don't meet the deadline.
