Join us in celebrating our students' success.
A highlight of the UCOL calendar is commemorating the achievements of our students at Graduation. Everyone who is involved in our students' study journey - from lecturers to whānau, gather together for what is a formal and enjoyable occasion.
Graduates must be ready inside the Wairarapa College Pavillion in academic dress by 2pm. Attendance will be registered and preparations completed for the official Graduation ceremony at 2.30pm, which lasts for approximately one and a half hours.
This is followed by a special Graduation procession down Queen Street (weather permitting), finishing at the UCOL's Student Hub for students to enjoy some light refreshments and socialising with whānau, friends and of course their favourite UCOL lecturers.
Students and guests are welcome to take photos and videos during the ceremony.
Pete Nikolaison Photography will be taking official photos at the ceremony to capture the moment you receive your award as well as individual, family or group photographs at the Student Hub.
