Please note that this form is ONLY for the March 2020 Chester graduation ceremonies

The form will only work once your final award has been confirmed. Please contact your department if you are unsure when your award will be confirmed.

Ticket Allocation

Each graduand/diplomate is guaranteed 2 guest tickets, in addition to your own ticket as graduand/diplomate.  These will be posted to you no later than the week commencing Monday 24th February 2020. Additional tickets can be requested using the form but these are not guaranteed.

We can not advise on extra ticket availability until Monday 24th February 2020 nor guarantee that there will be any extra tickets remaining. Extra tickets will be allocated equitably once the booking form has closed and included with the guaranteed ticket allocation.

If it is not possible to provide you with extra guest tickets, please note the ceremonies are streamed live over the internet (using the 'Graduation Ceremony Video' link on the right hand side of the page) and they are also streamed into White's Dining Rooms and the University Chapel on Parkgate Road Campus.

Tickets will NOT be posted to addresses outside of the UK. If you are not able to provide an address in the UK that your tickets can be posted to, you will need to collect your tickets from the Northgate Arena on the day of your Ceremony (when you collect your gown). You will be provided with details of the day and of your ticket allocation via email.

Unpaid tuition fees must be cleared by Monday 10th February 2020. Any student who has not settled their debts by this date will not be eligible to attend their Graduation Ceremony and their degree or award certificate will be withheld until such time as the debt has been cleared.

Academic Appeals

University policy specifies that no student should attend their Graduation Ceremony pending the outcome of an Academic Appeal.
