The Chancellor, Mr John Story, and members of the Senate invite you to attend the December 2014 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 2014 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 5pm on Friday 5 December, so that stage seating can be allocated and suitable academic dress can be arranged for you. Please click here [link removed - eligible staff will receive an email invitation with link included] to register your attendance.
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 5 December 2014. 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, please ensure you make yourself known to a Graduations staff member when you arrive on the day, 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 Student Progression (Graduations) Section on telephone 3365 9194 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
