Graduation day

Ceremonies are held at Llewellyn Hall [building 100]. Each ceremony runs for approximately two hours and is followed by a reception. On the day we advise the following: 

  • Collect your guest tickets from Hayden Allen G040, on Monday 11th or Tuesday 12 July 2017. If you cannot collect your guest tickets on this day, you may collect them on the day of your ceremony from the Llewellyn Hall box office up to a half hour before the event.
  • Collect your pre-arranged regalia from the Band Room in the Peter Karmel building [121], from two hours and no later than one hour prior to your ceremony.
  • One hour before the ceremony, graduands must make their way to the Graduand Registration Room in the School of Music [building 100], beside Llewellyn Hall. Staff will register your attendance, and issue you with your own ticket and seat allocation.
  • A half hour before the ceremony, graduands will receive verbal instructions in the Graduand Registration Room. Graduands will then make their way inside Llewellyn Hall, and sit only in their assigned seat. Guests will make their way inside separately.
  • After the ceremony refreshments and canapés will be provided. New graduates may take this time to celebrate with friends, family and their peers.
