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) using your drink voucher, which is attached to your ticket. 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. There will be live music to add to the ambience. Make sure that you take the time to visit our Careers and Alumni stands to discuss how you can stay in touch with the University. There will also be options to purchase merchandise and memorabilia.  

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