In order to ensure you are able to attend the ceremony you need to complete the following processes:

  1. Register your attendance
  2. Purchase guest tickets
  3. Order your academic gown

Register your Attendance

Register here - current students

Register here - former students

All students eligible to attend Graduation need to inform us whether they will be attending the ceremony by 5 May 2023, by following the 'Register Here' button (to the right) to register from the 17 April 2023.

Please note students WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND GRADUATION unless they have registered by 5 May 2023.

On the day:

As per Welsh Government guidance, events are not being planned with social distancing measures in place and guests should not attend if they suspect that they have Covid 19 or are displaying symptoms.  All Ceremonies are screened live on the University website so can be watched live.

Students only should arrive in the Main Arts Lecture Theatre at least 90 minutes before the start of the ceremony to register that they are present.

Guest Tickets

Admission to the Ceremony for all guests is by TICKET ONLY. Students do not need to purchase a ticket. Most students like to bring friends and family along to their graduation ceremony. As seating in the Prichard-Jones Hall is limited, we are only able to reserve TWO GUEST TICKETS per student if purchased before 5 May 2023, at the cost of £12.00 each. Tickets should be purchased when registering your attendance.

If you fail to purchase your guest tickets by 5 May, we cannot guarantee your guests attendance at the ceremony.

If any additional tickets become available for the ceremonies, these will be placed for sale on the day of the ceremony. Tickets cost £12.00 each and each student will be limited to two extra guest tickets. Additional tickets, if available, will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

Tickets can only be purchased online and are non-transferable.

Tickets will NOT be posted out to you; they will be available for collection on the day of your ceremony from the Main Arts Lecture Theatre.

Ticket Collection

All guest tickets will be available for collection at the student registration desk in the Main Arts Lecture Theatre. 

All tickets must be collected 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony from the Main Arts Lecture Theatre.

Update 11/05/2023

 In consultation with the Student’s Union, in light of student feedback and in recognition of the current cost of living crisis, we are offering a refund of the guest ticket purchase price to any student or family in financial hardship.

Should you have already registered to attend your Graduation Ceremony, and find yourself in this situation, please email, and staff will be happy to refund the cost of your guest tickets, which can take up to 28 days to process.  Please include in the email your full name and student ID number (the one starting 500).

We will be donating money from tickets already sold to the Student hardship fund. 


At Bangor University, Graduation is a family occasion and children are welcome to attend. However, they must be accompanied by an adult. The ceremonies last for approximately 90 minutes and experience shows that children become bored and restless, so they are not suitable for very young children. Out of respect for other guests we request that children should be taken outside if they become unsettled during the ceremony so as not to disrupt proceedings and disturb other guests.

Children under the age of 3 (up to the maximum of two per student) must sit on an adult’s lap, and not on a seat. They do not require a ticket.

Children aged 3 and over must have a full price guest ticket for entry to the ceremony. If you are bringing an infant to the Ceremony, who is still in a pram or push chair, please can you indicate this when you purchase your tickets.  You will be asked whether any of your guests require any special arrangements.  We would advise that children watch the ceremony from the Main Arts Lecture Theatre, where no tickets are required.


Additional Guests

You are welcome to bring additional guests who may watch the ceremony relayed on a large screen in a nearby lecture theatre – tickets are not required for this.

Visa Requests

If any international student requires a visa letter for their guests wishing to attend graduation, you will be able to request this when you book your guest tickets online.

Academic Gown

Graduation is a formal occasion and students are required to wear academic dress. The Academic Gowns are ordered from Ede and Ravenscroft here from 17th April 2023 - Academic Dress.

Please note it is cheaper to order your gown before the ceremony either on-line or telephone than pay for a hire on the day.
