Graduation Ceremonies



Information about how to apply to attend the 2018 Graduation Ceremonies will appear here when the provisional schedule has been agreed and published.

Purchase Tickets

You can purchase tickets to attend the 2018 UCL Graduation Ceremonies on Portico, after receiving your invitation email from the UCL Graduation Ceremonies Team. All students awarded after September 2009 will be able to access their university email and Portico account for life. 

Students or alumni who have set up the mobile password reset (MyAccount) service will be able to reset their password online. If your password has expired and you have not set up the MyAccount self-service you will need to contact the ISD Service Desk to resolve any issues you are experiencing accessing your account.

Please refer to your invite and the online application form on Portico for information about the deadline to apply to attend and purchase guest tickets. Students must apply to attend even if they are not purchasing guest tickets. Guest tickets cost £45 each. 

If there are additional guest tickets available for a ceremony Students will be notified in their Confirmation correspondence. These tickets will be sold on a 'first come, first served', basis. Although Student tickets are complimentary, all guest tickets must be paid for when submitting an application.

Collecting Tickets

We do not post tickets, all tickets will be available for collection on the day of your Graduation Ceremony from the Registration Desk. Please go to the Venues page for details regarding location and opening times.

Cancel Tickets

The deadline for students to cancel their tickets and receive a refund has passed for the 2018 July and September ceremonies and it is no longer possible to request a refund.

If you wish to cancel your attendance to the 2018 graduation ceremonies, please complete the cancellation form, sign it and send the completed form to ceremonies@ucl.ac.uk.

If you have booked your academic dress (robe) and are no longer attending your Graduation Ceremony remember to cancel it directly with our supplier J.Wippell & Co Ltd to receive a refund.
