With the dawn of graduation fast approaching for many of you we thought it fitting to include a piece about the upcoming graduation ceremony and life after Uni.
We hope that you will have registered to attend your graduation ceremony and have got your robing and what not sorted.
Here are some handy snippets of information to make sure you’re up to speed with the graduation ceremony!
- All students who have registered to attend graduation are guaranteed 2 tickets. But if you wanted more people to embarrass you in front of your mates (and to weep with pride as they see you collect your degree certificate) and you requested a few extra you can now check online to see how many tickets have been allocated to you. Click on ‘Student System’ followed by ‘Self Service’ and then select ‘Student Centre’ and hey presto, you should be able to see your ticket allocation.
- Remember to print your ticket allocation and bring it with you when you pick up your robes on the day.
- Smile for the camera! If you couldn’t get the extra tickets you wanted, then fear not! There will be a live cinema link-up in Crawford House, Theatre A (campus map ref 33) and for those who aren’t able to make the trip to Manchester, here’s the link to the live feed of the ceremonies: Graduation Ceremonies

Not sure what you want to do next? Don’t panic; why not book an appointment with the Careers service? They offer help with writing CVs and also run mock interview sessions. You can use the Careers service for 2 years after you graduate.
Life after Uni can be a scary prospect, no more is it socially acceptable to have last week’s takeaway in your living room or to start the day at 3pm (unless you’re on nights). Although the world of work can come as a culture shock (managers probably won’t like it if you fall asleep), it certainly has its perks, most notably a monthly pay check J and the feeling of being financially independent from your parents.
