Our annual HE Graduation ceremony will take place on Saturday 15 September 2018 at The Empire and our Abbey Park Campus.
All of our students who have successfully completed their higher education qualifications in 2017/18 are invited to attend this ceremony. This includes those studying foundation degrees, higher national diplomas and certificate, BA and BSC (Hons) degrees, and PGCEs.
We’re also delighted to announce that we’re introducing student awards at our HE graduation, to recognise the outstanding achievement and efforts of our HE students. The categories are: Principal’s Award for Outstanding Achievement; Chair of Governor’s Award for Student Engagement; and Vice Principal’s Award for Scholarship.
It is essential that if you are intending to graduate at the ceremony that you book your place. Tickets for graduands are free. If you would like to bring guests you can initially book tickets for three paying guests (plus free child places if required). If there are any guest tickets remaining closer to the date we will release these for sale and let you know that they are available. Guest tickets cost £15 each plus a booking fee of £1.76*. There is no charge for children under 10 who attend as a guest but they must be accompanied by an adult.
The deadline for booking your place at the ceremony is Friday 17 August 2018. We are unable to accept any graduation registrations after this deadline or accommodate any unregistered graduands who attend on the day. All guest tickets must be booked by 31 August 2018.
We may take photos at this event, which may be published in print or online. If you don’t wish to be photographed please let a member of staff know.
Gowning and photography
The majority of our graduands choose to wear a cap and gown for their graduation ceremony. We work with established Robemaker William Northam who provides the cap and gowns for our graduation. Again there is a charge for the hire of the cap and gowns, this can be booked and paid for via the William Northam site, please see link below. Please choose Leicester College as your graduating institution.
Photography options can also be found through the link below.
