Subject: UQ Graduation Ceremony Registration 

Dear Colleague,

The Chancellor, Mr John Story AO, and members of the Senate invite you to attend theDecember 2015 graduation ceremonies. As a member of academic staff, you are invited to participate in the Academic Procession, and to be seated on the stage for the ceremonies relevant to your discipline.

Please click here to review the complete December 2015 graduation ceremony schedule.

If you wish to attend any of these ceremonies, please note that it is necessary to complete the online registration form by no later than Friday 4 December, so that stage seating can be allocated and suitable academic dress can be arranged for you. Please [click here - link removed - please access via your emailed invitation] to register your attendance.

Academic Staff registering to participate in ceremonies are asked to note the following important change to academic dress arrangements at St Lucia. From December 2015, pre-ordered academic dress for staff members must be collected from the academic procession registration booth in the Foyer of the UQ Centre. Academic dress arrangements for Gatton graduation ceremonies must be collected from the first floor of Morrison Hall as in previous ceremony periods.

Having members of academic staff participating in the Academic Procession is a highlight for graduands and guests, and we hope it is an enjoyable experience for you also, as you celebrate the success of your students.

You are requested to note that, in keeping with the revised administrative processes previously conveyed by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) to Executive Deans, late registrations to attend graduation ceremonies cannot be accepted, because graduations staff will be fully deployed on other aspects of ceremony planning after Friday 4 December. If you have not registered by the deadline I regret to advise that you will not be able to participate in the Academic Procession.

Due to the limited capacity of the venues, and in order to provide maximum guest tickets to graduands, academic staff are encouraged to participate in the Academic Procession. Those wishing to invite industry partners or sponsors may apply for up to 2 VIP tickets.

If you are graduating with an award at the ceremony, you must also respond to the invitation sent to your student email address. This email includes important information regarding your status as a graduating student. When you arrive on the ceremony day, please ensure you make yourself known to a Graduations staff member, so you can be briefed on the procedure for graduating from stage.

I hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating this important occasion for our graduates. Should you have any questions about the December graduations or the registration process, please do not hesitate to contact Graduations Section on telephone 3365 9194 or email

Mrs Maureen Bowen
Academic Registrar
