Costs – planning ahead
Please be aware there are some additional costs associated with participating in Graduation. We appreciate that students are often on a tight budget, so to help you plan and save for these costs, here is a handy list to keep in mind:
Each guest ticket costs £25, which includes:
- Entry to the specified graduation ceremony
- Entry to the post-ceremony Beach Marquee Reception and a glass of champagne
- A commemorative Graduation Programme
All graduands must wear a cap and gown in official AUB colours to participate in Graduation. Please plan for the cost of gown hire (prices from our recommended supplier Ede & Ravenscroft):
- Undergraduate £45
- Postgraduate £51
- PhD £58
If you'd like to purchase portrait photography, Ede & Ravenscroft is the official photographer provider that will have a photography studio onsite on the day of your ceremony. There are a variety of packages available at different price points and these packages need to be booked in advance. Have formal photos taken of yourself in your cap and gown after your ceremony with your family and friends.
You can cancel your own registration to attend Graduation at any time leading up to your ceremony date by emailing us directly at email@example.com.
You’ll need to contact the gowning company directly to cancel your gown hire and photography package if you’ve ordered one. Please be aware they will have their own cancellation/refund policy.
You can cancel one or both of your guest tickets and receive a full refund up to 7 days prior to your ceremony date. You'll need to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org up to 7 days prior to your ceremony date to let us know of your cancellation. If you notify us less than 7 days prior to your ceremony date, unfortunately, we'll be unable to refund you for your guest tickets, unless under exceptional circumstances.
If your tickets have already been posted to you via a UK address, you'll need to return the unused tickets to the Graduation Office either by post or in person (to Reception on campus). Please be aware we can't issue refunds if tickets have not been returned to us.
