Staff Involvement in Graduation

Graduation reflects not just the pride we have in the academic achievements of our students but is also the culmination of the efforts of all University staff. 

We encourage any and all staff to get involved in the Graduation celebration. 

Graduation is managed by the Stakeholder Relations and Events Team, working closely with colleagues in Alumni and Development, Colleges, Faculties, Registry, Commercial Services, Facilities, Communications and Marketing. 

Volunteer at Graduation

Graduation is a real team effort and relies on numerous staff from across the University to come together to deliver Graduation.  

There are lots of different roles with over 100 staff helping during graduation. 

Contact Christine Phillips, Events Manager (Graduation) for more information. 

Recruitment for Graduation will start 2-3 months before the ceremony

Academic Processions

Show your support for our graduating students by taking part in the academic procession.

All colleagues (academic and professional services) who wish to attend graduation ceremonies can join the academic procession.

Robes will be hired free of charge.  A plain black bachelor gown will be hired for non-degree holders.
