Guest tickets

How to buy guest tickets

For UWE Bristol Awards Ceremonies, you will have been sent an email inviting you to register your attendance and offering you the opportunity to purchase guest tickets.

The guest ticket price covers the cost of holding the event, a souvenir programme and refreshments after the ceremony.

To purchase guest tickets, you will need a credit or debit card and billing address. You are guaranteed a maximum of two guest tickets to be purchased by the registration deadline, with the opportunity to purchase unallocated guest tickets after the registration deadline.

Attendance is free of charge to all graduating students. Children under the age of three, who can sit on another guest's knee, do not require a ticket.


Guest tickets will be refunded following the ceremonies, if you have not met the eligibility criteria to have your award conferred. You may cancel your registration and any guest tickets by emailing by the registration deadline.

Refunds requested after the registration deadline will not be made, except in exceptional circumstances, as arrangements have already been made for the Awards Ceremony. Please refer to the Graduation Terms and Conditions.

Ticket collection

Guest tickets will not be posted but will be available for collection at the Cathedral when you arrive for your ceremony through the cloister door entrance. Please bring your confirmation of purchase email from UWE Bristol's Online Store with you to the ceremony.

Your guests will be directed through the north entrance so you will be able to pass on your guest tickets once you have registered and robed.

Please inform the Graduation Box Office if your guests are going to arrive late. We will make sure your guest tickets are taken to the north door entrance and left with a member of the security team. Guests will need their tickets to enter the Cathedral and for the refreshments afterwards.
