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.

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 reserved before (TBC) Tickets should be reserved when registering your attendance.

If you fail to reserve your guest tickets by (TBC) we cannot guarantee your guests attendance at the ceremony.

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.

 

Children

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  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.

Graduation is a formal occasion and students are required to wear academic dress. The Academic Gowns are ordered from Ede and Ravenscroft here from (TBC)- Academic Dress. Last day for pre ordering your gown is (TBC)

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.
