Registering to attend your graduation ceremony - 2020 and 2021 graduates

How to register for your re-scheduled graduation ceremony.

Ceremonies in May, June and July

We are holding in-person graduation ceremonies in May, June and July 2022 for those whose ceremonies were cancelled in 2020 and 2021.

The ceremonies will take place in Bath Abbey and an invitation to register to attend will be emailed to all eligible graduates in March.

The ceremonies will be live streamed on the University website.

Registering to attend

If you’re eligible to attend a ceremony in May, June or July you will be sent an email invitation in March asking you to register for your ceremony.

The invitation emails will be staggered, with those scheduled for a ceremony in May receiving their invitation first.

If you are eligible to attend and have not received your invitation by the end of March please contact

The invitation email will direct you to an online registration form where you'll be able to:

  • confirm whether or not you'll be coming to the ceremony
  • let us know about any accessibility arrangements you need to make
  • request a visa letter

Registration deadlines

In order to guarantee your place at the ceremony you need to respond using the registration form sent to you in the email by the following dates:

May ceremonies - Sunday 10 April
June ceremonies - Sunday 8 May
July ceremonies - Sunday 8 May

After these dates, any remaining places will be opened up to those who cannot attend their allocated ceremony.

You'll be able to change your details at any point before the deadline.

Deferring attendance to a future ceremony

We understand that it may not be possible for you to attend due to travel and other restrictions related to COVID-19. You can therefore defer your place and attend a future set of ceremonies.

You will be asked to confirm on the registration form if you wish to defer your place.

Hiring a gown

Once you've registered to attend your ceremony you will need to hire a gown to wear on the day.

Details on how to book a gown can be found on our graduation gowns page.
