Invitation to attend and take part in the academic procession.

All members of The General Assembly, The Board of Governors, Senate, Emeritus Professors, Wardens of Halls of Residence and members of the teaching and administrative staff are invited to attend and take part in the academic procession.

If you wish to attend, please complete the Academic Procession Confirmation Form (via the link below) no later than 28 November 2008, indicating the ceremony or ceremonies at which you intend to be present, and return it to Katie Thorn in the Student Services Centre.

You should assemble in full academic dress in Committee Room A, Whitworth Corridor, not less than 20 minutes before each ceremony.

Robes for members of staff will be ordered free of charge, provided the form is returned by 28 November 2008. Gowns ordered after 28 November may not be available and will also incur a £35 charge.

Please indicate on the form if you are simply processing or presenting graduands from your school.

Members of the procession who have ordered academic dress may obtain their robes from Committee Room A, Whitworth Corridor immediately prior to the start of the ceremony they are attending. Please note that all robes hired for staff must be returned to the Committee Room A on the day of the ceremony. Failure to do so will result in a charge being levied.

Alternative arrangements have been made for members of academic staff who are required to present graduands. Details of these will be circulated to the individuals concerned in due course.

Please note that the platform party for each ceremony will be restricted to a maximum of 40. Places in the procession will be issued on confirmation of an intention to attend on a first come first served basis.
