Registration for Commemoration Day 2019

Please note registration for the Wednesday 16 October 2019 Commemoration Day will open on Monday 29 July 2019, after which point you will receive an email from the Graduation team inviting you to register for graduation. You will be unable to register for graduation until you have received this email. You can also register on this website. 

If you are eligible to graduate you can register to attend your ceremony as soon as you receive the email invitation and buy guest ceremony tickets and guest department reception tickets for your guests. Registration for Postgraduate Graduation will close at noon (UK time) Wednesday 28 August 2019.  Regrettably we are unable to accept registrations after this point.  

When you register, you can complete the following tasks:  

Register for your graduand tickets

Graduand ceremony tickets and graduand department reception tickets are complimentary.  

You must register for your graduand tickets before noon (UK time) on Wednesday 28 August 2019 in order to attend.

Buy your guest ceremony and guest department reception tickets  

You can purchase up to two guest ceremony tickets for your ceremony and up to two guest department reception tickets for your department reception which takes place after your ceremony.

Guest ceremony tickets only are available to purchase from the Royal Albert Hall and are £25 each. You will be directed to the Royal Albert Hall website during the registration process. Guest ceremony tickets are posted to the billing address of the card used to pay, can be collected on the day from the Door 12 ticket office, printed at home or as an e-ticket.

Guest department reception tickets are only available to purchase on the registration portal and are £15 each.

Children and babies

Guest ceremony tickets and guest department reception tickets must be purchased for children aged over two years old if you wish them to attend. Graduation is a formal occasion so may not be suitable for very young children.  

Tell us about any special requirements

If you need to book a disabled car parking space on campus, or if you or your guests have any special requirements, let us know during the registration process. Read more about accessibility and special requirements at Commemoration Day.

Additional guest ceremony tickets 

Once registration has closed additional guest ceremony tickets and guest department reception tickets may become available to purchase. More information will be provided about availability of additional tickets by Monday 9 September 2019, with any additional tickets available to purchase shortly afterwards.  Please note guest department reception tickets sell out quicker than guest ceremony tickets, therefore you are not guaranteed the same number of tickets for both the department reception and ceremony.  

Guest ceremony seating 

On Commemoration Day, you will not sit with your guests. Guests seating is allocated inside the Royal Albert Hall and seat numbers will be indicated on guest ceremony tickets.  You will be seated with other graduands.
