After your ceremony  

After your ceremony, you should make your way to the Alumni Reception to join your fellow graduates, guests and members of academic staff to celebrate your achievements. There will be refreshment areas where you can collect a glass of sparkling wine (non-alcoholic alternatives will be available).

The Alumni Reception will last for about an hour.  
Staff will be circulating through the event so please feel free to chat to them and take photos to remember the day. There will also be plenty of photo points and our special graduation backdrop.

Make sure that you take the time to visit our Careers, Alumni and Student Association stands to discuss how you can stay in touch with the University. You may have the opportunity to purchase merchandise on the day and we will only be able to accept cash payments.

Please remember to return your gown at the drop-off point before you leave the venue.
