Official Procession

At the end of the ceremony, the official academic party and graduates exit the theatre to form a procession. Guests should remain in their seats and not block the aisles or foyer until all graduates have exited. Guests are invited to join in on the end of the procession which will proceed through town (weather permitting) to the UCOL atrium for refreshments.


An official photographer will attend all ceremonies to take a photo of everyone receiving their award. For portrait packages the photographer will be available in the atrium before and after the ceremonies. A leaflet is enclosed within your graduation pack which outlines the prices and ordering information. Individuals are welcome to take photos and videos during the ceremony.
