Graduation ceremony

What to do on the day

Quick guide to your graduation day

The first thing you need to do on the day of your ceremony is go to the John Lennon Art and Design Building to collect your robe, tickets and have your official photograph taken.

Allow approximately:

  • 20 minutes to register and collect your tickets
  • 20 minutes to collect your gown
  • 20 minutes to walk from the John Lennon Art and Design Building to Liverpool Cathedral
  • Photography can be done before or after your ceremony

There are no car parking facilities at the John Lennon Art and Design Building. The Liverpool Cathedral car park is for permit holders only. You will be able to drop off at each of these venues.

When you register at the John Lennon Art and Design Building you will receive your seating card which will tell you where you will be seated inside the Cathedral for the ceremony. Students, please keep this with you!

Each ceremony will last approximately 1hr 30mins.

Official photography will take place in the John Lennon Art and Design Building. If you are graduating in the morning please try to have your pictures taken before the ceremony.

Restaurants will be very busy in the city centre so pre-booking is advised.
