How many guests can I bring to the ceremony? 

All graduands who book in for their ceremony are guaranteed to receive two guest tickets. E-tickets will be sent approximately two weeks prior to the ceremony.  

Please do not make any travel arrangements for guests who do not have tickets. Any travel arrangements made will be at your own risk. Please note, the University cannot guarantee additional tickets will be available.

Can my guests bring children to the ceremony?

Yes, graduation is a family occasion. However, you must include children in your request for tickets (with the exception of babies). If small children become upset or restless during the ceremony, we kindly ask that your guests take them out of the auditorium until they have settled.

Visa letters

If you or your guests require a visa letter to attend the ceremony, please email graduations@solent.ac.uk and include the following information in full:

  • Your full name
  • Your full course title
  • Your date of birth and those of your guests
  • The full names of your guests (a maximum of two guests can be included on a visa letter)
  • The full postal address of you, your guests, and their relationship to you.

You must book in for your ceremony before you request a letter.

As each application varies, please also make sure you allow plenty of time to apply for your visas.
