Taking part in a ceremony

Coronavirus

Summer Graduation has been postponed for 2020. We will update you as more information is available.

See the staff coronavirus web pages.

A key element to creating such a celebratory atmosphere at graduation is the presence of academic and professional services staff.

As an academic, students will appreciate seeing you alongside them on stage and at the post-ceremony drinks reception.

If you’re a member of professional services staff, your practical input in the event is just as important. Roles available include:

  • registration and ticket distribution
  • stewarding guests and graduands
  • graduand robing.
