All are welcome to join us on campus after the ceremonies for a reception with refreshments and live entertainment. Entry to campus is free. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase champagne and other soft drinks from our bar. Students must return to campus after the ceremonies in order to return their hired gowns.
Students are required to wear Academic Dress for the occasion. This can be hired from our supplier Ede and Ravenscroft via their website (please see ‘relevant links’). Gowns must be ordered in advance of the ceremonies. Please note that savings will be made if you book online, rather than over the telephone. The deadline for gown booking and payment is 24th May 2013.
Our official photographers, Ede and Ravenscroft, will be present on the day to take photographs. You will be able to pre-order a photography package via their website or purchase on the day (please see ‘relevant links’). Please note that savings can be made by pre-ordering.
All students will be issued with a complementary DVD of their ceremony. This will be sent to your home address with your degree certificate.
The ceremonies will be streamed live over the internet. A link to the webcast will be placed on our homepage on Graduation day.
