Who is eligible to attend
Undergraduate and postgraduate students who are scheduled to complete their courses before 15 June 2017 are invited to the July 2017 graduation ceremonies. In order to attend with or without guests, you must register your place and order any guest tickets by the deadline of 11.55pm on Tuesday 25 April 2017 even if your final results have not been announced. The invitation is not an indication that you have qualified for the award of a degree.
How to book
You must book your place before the deadline via your My Details account (https://halo.hud.ac.uk/mydetails/) to be able to attend the ceremonies.
Booking will be open at 10am on Wednesday 8 March 2017, and will close at 11.55pm on Tuesday 25 April 2017 and it is not possible to book at any other time. Beyond this time and date, a place at the advertised ceremony can no longer be guaranteed and it may not be possible for you to attend a ceremony with your course colleagues or to have any guests in the main venue.
Guest tickets are free of charge but are only guaranteed in the main venue if ordered before the deadline. All tickets are collected on the day and nothing will be posted out to you.
If you are having difficulties, please see the Help sheets and guides section below for downloadable guides with screen shots to help you through the process.
Please note that due to essential system maintenance, My Details will not be available between 12noon on Thursday 13 April and 8am on Tuesday 18 April. We apologise for the inconvenience.
If you or your guests have any special requirements, such as wheelchair or ground floor seating, there is a specific section of the invitation process where you can let us know. Please make sure to identify whether this relates to you or your guests. If you miss the opportunity to do this via the invite process, please let us know in advance of your ceremony by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you do not wish to shake the Chair of Ceremony or Dean’s hand, please include this when booking your place by using the special requirements section of the invite.
Confirmation of your booking
The final page of the invitation process (marked Please print this page) acts as your confirmation of booking. You will also receive an email confirming that your atttendance has been registered. We would advise that you print these pages/emails for future reference but you do not need to bring them with you on the day. If you do not receive these then you have not completed the booking process and neither your place nor that of your guests have been reserved. All tickets are collected on the day and nothing is posted out to you.
