Childcare arrangements

Children under the age of seven years old will not be permitted into the auditorium (regardless of whether you have managed to obtain a guest ticket for them) as these ceremonies are not suitable for young children. 

Please make sure you arrange sufficient childcare well in advance to avoid disappointment or issues.  

Any young person over the age of seven is welcome to come along to the degree ceremonies but must have their own guest ticket. Children will not be allowed to sit on an adult's lap in the auditorium as this poses a health and safety hazard. Guests under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.
