Academic Dress

Once you arrive you will be directed to our gowning area. Here you show the student card handed to you at the registration desk (keep hold of this!), and have your gown fitted. This gown will be matched to the level of your qualification and the height details provided when you first registered.

Rehearsal

We want your big day to go off without a hitch, so a quick and fun rehearsal is a must. Before the actual ceremony, all students will be called into the venue for a full rundown of the event, including where to sit, walking across the stage, on-stage photography and more. Please be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for when we call you in this must-attend session held approximately an hour before the ceremony on the day.

Guests

Your friends and family will have a comfortable place to eat, drink and mingle while you are gowned or in rehearsal. This will be clearly sign posted and will be where you can find them if and when you want to grab photos before the ceremony.
We suggest that if you can that you pass on your phone or anything else onto them or place it into the cloakroom as soon possible.

Photography

A professional photographer will be on site to take quality photos of you and your guests before and after the ceremony.
