Key things to do before Graduation

Register in November 2020

Order your academic dress before November 2020

You must wear the appropriate academic dress for the academic award you are to receive in order to be able to attend your Graduation ceremony. You can only order your gown, cap and hood from our official partner William Northam.

Make travel arrangements to ensure you arrive two hours before the start of your ceremony

We ask you to arrive at the venue two hours before your ceremony to ensure that you will have time to register your and your guests' arrival, be fitted for your gown and to take photographs. You will then be asked to take your seats 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony.
