Diploma desk

During the Graduation Celebrations you can collect your diploma at the diploma desk that can be found near the Aula. Please fill out the survey so we can make sure that your diploma will be at the desk.


There will be ample opportunity to have your photo taken during the Graduation Celebrations.  We will have your group photo taken on stage in the Aula, as well as an official graduation picture. 

If you haven't already taken it, you can have your I WILL photo taken at the event, and we will also add a photo booth for a more lighthearted touch.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, we will toast on your achievements with a complimentary drink. After this, we will have an open bar where you can buy another drink if you would like.


You can bring two guests to the Graduation Celebration. We do not currently expect that there will be capacity for more than two guests per graduate in the celebration, but we are searching for alternative possibilities.

Join us to celebrate our wonderful alumni network with a diverse programme including lectures, workshops, discussions, fun activities, exploring the campus, graduation celebrations etc., aimed at our alumni, their partners and family, and current and former staff members.

Together, we want to reconnect face-to-face as a community, and catch up on all the events that we missed over the last two years.
