Abertay University Graduation

Abertay University Graduation

Graduation Day

The Winter Graduation Ceremony will be held on Friday 25 November at 11.00am.   Students from all Schools will graduate and the ceremony will last approximately one hour.

The ceremony will start promptly so we would ask that graduands and their guests are seated at least 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony. Late arrivals will not be admitted to the Hall once the ceremony has started.

University staff will be on hand to show graduands to their seats, so please have your seat identification number ready. Once seated, it is very important that you do not change places with anyone for any reason.

Receiving your Award

At the appropriate time, University staff will guide you towards the stage and assist you in putting your hood on. It is important to remain in the order in which you were seated. You will be guided up the stairs on to the stage and when your name is called you will walk across the stage and pause in front of the Chancellor who will then cap you. You will continue to the other side of the stage where you will receive your certificate holder. Please leave the stage through the door at the side of the stage and proceed into the corridor where you will receive your certificate before returning to your seat.

When the ceremony is finished, the platform party will leave the stage and process down the centre aisle. Graduates will join the rear of the academic procession as directed by University staff.

Celebratory Refreshments

We would be delighted if you and your guests would join us in the Marryat Hall after the Ceremony for a glass of fizz (or soft drink) and some light refreshments. We hope to see you there!
