Your time to shine
Graduation is the formal process of awarding your degree and marks your successful transition from uni student to qualified professional.
To those who've helped you through it's much more than that. For your friends and family, lecturers and tutors, graduation is their time to share your success and show how proud they are of all that you've achieved.
Your invitation will be emailed to you approximately 6 weeks prior to your ceremony. The invitation will include the date and time of your ceremony.
