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.
This Graduation event is for graduates of all qualifications.
All graduates must attend registration in
prior to the ceremony at UCOL's Atrium. This will be followed by the procession of graduates from UCOL to Regent on Broadway. The official Graduation Ceremony lasts for approximately two hours.
This is followed by a Graduation procession back to UCOL (weather permitting), finishing at UCOL's Atrium for students to enjoy some light refreshments and socialising with whānau, friends and students' favourite UCOL lecturers.
Academic dress for UCOL's Graduation Ceremonies should be hired from
Academic Dress Hire
. This is a charitable trust that supports UCOL.
- Gowns $40
- Hoods $20
- Hats $20
- Sashes $5
Students and guests are welcome to take photos and videos during the ceremony.
A professional photographer will be taking official photos at the ceremony to capture the moment you receive your award as well as portrait packages in the UCOL Atrium.
Tickets to attend Graduation are free. Graduates will be allocated three guest tickets for their ceremony. We would appreciate it if you could let us know if you do not need all three guest tickets so we can reallocate these to other students. It may be possible to obtain seating for additional guests.
