Website outage

Our website will be down for essential maintenance from 3.00pm Wed 27 March until the afternoon of Thurs 28 March (at the latest) – we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.



All graduands who would like to walk in the parade are to meet at Albert Park near the water fountain at 11.00am. All graduands must arrive on time and be wearing their academic dress. There will be a photographer there taking photos of all graduands and guests. The parade will depart at 11.15am and will be led by a piper and drummer. For students walking in the parade, your guests are more than welcome to follow you along the parade and cheer you on!  

You do not have to walk in the parade if you don’t want to. If this is the case, please ensure you meet at the Pullman Hotel at 12:00pm sharp. There will be staff and volunteers who will show you where to go.



Registration will begin promptly at 12:00pm. This is where you will get in your correct order for crossing the stage. If you arrive late, or without academic dress, you may not be able to take part in the ceremony. Guests may take their seats inside the Pullman Hotel from 12:00 pm.
