Graduation reception information

Information about the graduation receptions taking place in July 2023.

Your reception is a chance to informally celebrate with your classmates, departmental staff and guests.

You will receive a link to register for tickets once you've registered for your ceremony.

Reception schedule

The dates and times of the receptions can be found on this page

Some departments have more than one reception slot depending on their ceremony times, so please make sure you choose the correct slot when you register to attend.

Each reception will last an hour and a half and light refreshments will be served on arrival.

Your department may hold speeches or award prizes and if there's anything you need to know in advance they will get in touch with you directly.

We plan to have group photographs taken at the receptions and more information on this will follow.
