Graduation Ceremonies April 2019

Last November we held our Graduation Ceremonies at Venue 360 in Luton as our usual venue, St Mary’s Church was unavailable owing to building work. Unfortunately the church’s building work has overrun and we must relocate our April ceremonies as well.

Having considered the options again, and the noting the success of our ceremonies in November, I have decided we should return to Venue 360. Staff are working on the arrangements for this now.

Ceremonies will be held across three days, Wednesday 3 April - Friday 5 April. Individual invitations to students who may be eligible will have been emailed on 18 January, giving provisional information about the ceremonies and how to book their own place and reserve and pay for guest tickets. Bookings remain provisional until awards have been confirmed at Exam Board. There is no charge for graduates booking their own places.

We will mail graduates again on or about 15 February giving further details as follows:

  • Their allocated day and ceremony time
  • How to hire academic dress from our usual supplier

Please note that:

  • We guarantee two guest tickets to those graduates buying them by the deadline that will be advised. We hope to be able to offer additional guest tickets for sale at a later date, once initial uptake is known.
  • All graduates participating must wear the correct academic dress for the occasion

Any essential questions about April graduations not covered above or to be included in planned communications may be sent to
