Applying for Tickets
Tickets for the 2014 graduation ceremonies will be purchased via the UCL Student Information Service (PORTICO).
You will need your UCL userid and password to access PORTICO. If you have completed your programme at UCL you retain access to PORTICO for up to a year. Passwords are reset every three months so if you are unable to log in please contact the ISD Service Desk to have a new password issued. This can take time so ensure you make your request in good time to allow you to apply for your ceremony before the deadline.
Students who are eligible to attend the 2014 graduation ceremonies will be contacted in January 2014 to inform them once the online ticket application is available. At this point eligible students will have a link to purchase tickets in the Graduation Ceremonies container on PORTICO.
Undergraduate students will be sent an email to their UCL email inviting them to apply via PORTICO. Graduate students will receive a letter, posted to the 'contact' address taken from their student record, inviting them to apply via PORTICO.
I have just finished my Masters degree/Research degree, when will my graduation ceremony be?
UCL holds graduation ceremonies once a year. If you have just been awarded your degree you will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony in 2014. We will write to eligible students in January 2014 using the contact details taken from their student record. It is important for you to keep your contact details up to date on PORTICO.
If you are not attending
How will I get my degree certificate?
We do not present degree certificates at graduation ceremonies. Your certificate will be posted to you. Please refer to the My Degree page for more information.
I would still like to have my photograph taken in academic dress, how can I arrange this?
We hold Non-ceremony Photography Sessions once a term where you can have professional photographs taken in academic dress, and with friends and family. Please refer to our photography page for more information.
Once you have applied
On completion of the 2014 online application (accessed via PORTICO) you will receive an email confirming the payment you have made via the Barclaycard Payonline system and an email acknowledging your application. If you do not receive either of these communications please contact the Student Support and Events Team as soon as possible.
All communications after your initial application will be via letter and it is therefore essential that you keep your ‘contact address’ up to date on your PORTICO record.
All dates are provisional and no ticket requests are confirmed until you have received your confirmation letter in May 2014. We do not advise you or your guests to make travel or accommodation arrangements until this has been received.
