Access requirements

We are committed to making the graduation ceremonies accessible. If you have access requirements, find out about logistics and how we can help.

Specific requirements

We want you to feel welcome at the graduation ceremony, whether you are a student or a guest. Contact us to discuss any requirements you have and we will do our best to help you.

Some of the support we have been able to offer at previous ceremonies includes wheelchair access and a British Sign Language interpreter.

If you do not contact us to discuss your requirements in advance of the day, we may not be able to help.
