Joining and participating
If you have registered for a Virtual Ceremony, you will receive an email about a week before your ceremony with a link to confirm your name and email address. If you have not received this email by 30 September please email email@example.com.
You will need to join the event 30 minutes ahead of your start time so the company can assign you into the correct group and brief you before the event starts.
You will need a phone, laptop or computer. We recommend that you find a quiet place, with good internet connection or WiFi signal. If your connection drops out at any point don't worry, you will just need to click your personalised link in your email to re-join the ceremony.
How to register
The registration deadline for Virtual Ceremonies has now passed. We can no longer guarantee that you will be able to register, but if you have missed the deadline and would like to enquire about whether registration is possible, please email the Graduation Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By registering to attend you are agreeing to our terms and conditions.
The ceremony format will be speeches from senior members of university staff and a moment of recognition for each student, with your name read out and your screen visible on the main ceremony feed.
Ceremonies will last around 45 minutes and will be live streamed so that your friends and family can watch and celebrate with you.
Do I need to wear academic dress?
You do not need to wear academic dress for your Virtual Ceremony, but we're encouraging everyone to get creative and make their own hat so that you can look the part on the day!
If you would like to hire official academic dress for the event this is possible but there is a cost which would be in addition to hiring robes for any postponed ceremony you wish to attend. If you would like to find out more about hiring robes for Virtual Ceremonies please contact email@example.com.
Will I be able to see my course mates?
Everyone attending the ceremony will be shown on screen when their names are being read out, so you will have the chance to see everyone.
How will I get my certificate?
We don’t hand out certificates at our ceremonies, these will be sent to the home address on your student record. Please make sure that your home address is up to date in MyUWE.
