Visa support letters

If you or your guests are coming from a country that is outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), we can produce a letter to confirm that we are expecting you and your named guests to attend the ceremony. This letter can be used to support your visa application or a visa application for your guest(s).

We understand that you may be unsure if your visa application will or will not be accepted. This may make you hesitant to register for the ceremony, purchase guest tickets and hire robes.

If you are in this situation when you receive the graduation invite we would advise you to register your ceremony without purchasing guest tickets or hiring robes. This would be free of charge and will guarantee your place at the ceremony if you complete your award.

You would then be able to return to the online store to purchase guest tickets and hire your robes via the Ede & Ravenscroft website closer to the time of your ceremony. Just make sure you do so before the registration deadline.

In the event that you do purchase guest tickets and your visa is not facilitated, you will be eligible for a refund. Please check our terms and conditions for more information.

Request the letter

To request the letter, please contact the Graduation team at graduation@uwe.ac.uk after you have received your graduation invitation.

Please include your full name and student number, along with the information below for each guest who will be attending:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Relationship to you.

In your letter

If your award has not been confirmed by an Award Board, the letter will state that you will be attending on the condition that you have successfully completed your award before the appropriate deadline.

If your award has been confirmed by an Award Board then the letter will state that you are eligible to attend the Awards Ceremony.
