Key Information for the Graduates

Please take careful note of the information below depending on your graduation year, as there will be two ceremonies taking place on 7th December.  

  • Ceremony 1: Year of graduation 2020 / 2021 
  • Ceremony 2: Year of graduation 2019 / 2020  

Graduates and guests will need to arrive at The Mermaid building to register their attendance. In this building, graduates will gown in their robes and have their photography taken. Graduates and guests can then take seats and wait for the ceremony to begin. The ceremony will be followed by a celebratory reception where graduates and guests can enjoy refreshments.  

Please keep in mind the venue will need to be cleared by either 1.00pm or 5.00pm respectively for the next graduation ceremony. We encourage graduates and guests to visit local restaurants around The Mermaid to continue with the celebrations.


As there are two ceremonies running during the day, please check your emails for a detailed itinerary of your allocated ceremony. For guidance however, we would advise those attending the morning ceremony to arrive from 8:30am, and for the afternoon ceremony from 13:30pm.
