Graduation

Time to Celebrate

Each year, several thousand students become graduates of the 澳门赛马会 at our spectacular graduation ceremonies, held in the magnificent 澳门赛马会 Cathedral. The ceremonies are the most important events in the University's calendar, marking the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication from our students, and giving family, friends, and staff at the University the opportunity to congratulate our new graduates and celebrate their achievements.

When you graduate from the 澳门赛马会 you will become part of our global alumni community, which is made up of more than 95,000 graduates from across 135 countries. As a graduate of the University, you can access a wide range of benefits and services wherever you are in the world.

Graduand Tickets

Each graduand is guaranteed a ticket and two complimentary guest tickets to attend a ceremony when registering before the relevant deadline. Registration for our April 2024 ceremonies closes in early March 2024.

Your own ticket will have a seat number printed on it. You must sit in the seat allocated to you as it determines the order you will cross the stage during the ceremony. Your ticket will allow you admittance to the celebration reception and also contains a free drinks voucher, so please keep hold of it.

This email will be sent after ticket sales have closed, and you will need to bring this email and photo ID with you to collect your tickets from the ticketing desk.

Please see our full Graduation Terms and Conditions April 2024.

Guest Tickets

Guest seating is not allocated. If your guests have any specific requirements (e.g. for health or mobility reasons), please make note of this in your booking via the William Northam booking site and the graduation team will assist where possible.

Terms and Conditions

Please see our full Graduation Terms and Conditions April 2024.

Extra Guest Tickets

Extra guest tickets over and above the complimentary guest tickets will be subject to availability. The number of extra tickets available for each registered graduand to purchase will be calculated for each ceremony after the initial registration has closed.

If extra tickets are available, these will be limited in number and sold on a first come first serve basis at a cost of £20 per ticket (including VAT). All graduands who have registered to attend a ceremony will be notified by email any details regarding extra tickets.

Gowning

Please ensure you book your gown well in advance of your graduation date by visiting the gowning website (William Northam). Your gown will be collected on the day of your ceremony.

The link to hire your gown is: 

The deadline to book your gown for the April 2024 ceremonies is 4th March 2024 at midday.

The dress code for the ceremony is smart. Remember that academic gowns do not hide what is worn underneath, so what you wear will be very visible to the entire congregation. Gowns are also more difficult to wear over very casual clothes as they do not ‘sit’ well on the shoulders. Buttoned shirts are helpful for securing your gown hood and jackets help keep the gown in place. Your gown will slip if worn over silky fabric and very low-cut tops leave you with no means of keeping the hood in place. Please avoid jeans, trainers, casual sandals, open-necked shirts, T-shirts, and shorts as they are inappropriate for a formal graduation ceremony. 

Finally, remember you will have to wear a mortar board, so take care that your hairstyle will allow you to do so.

Please note: It is a requirement that all Graduands attending their graduation ceremony wear the appropriate 澳门赛马会 academic dress.
