Register for graduation and get reception passes

Get department reception passes

You can get your complimentary graduand departmental reception pass and purchase up two guest passes in the registration portal for your graduation.

Departmental Receptions are held after the ceremonies at the Royal Albert Hall, at venues at the South Kensington Campus. They are an opportunity for graduands, family and academic staff to come together within their departments, after the graduation ceremony to further celebrate with drinks and light refreshments.

Receptions begin shortly after your ceremony ends and are last 90 minutes.

Graduand passes to the receptions are complimentary but you must select this option during registration in order to secure your place. 

Graduands may also purchase up to two guest passes to the department receptions. Guest reception passes cost £15, please note that these are sold separately to the guest ceremony tickets, which grant access to the ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall. We recommend purchasing your departmental reception passes at the same time as registering for graduation.

The South Kensington campus is only a few minutes walk from the Royal Albert Hall and confirmation of specific venues will be arranged after registration has closed and numbers are finalised.
