Auckland Ceremony


The  2017 Auckland graduation ceremony is confirmed for Friday April 7 2017 at 3pm and will be held at the UCOL Institute of Commercial Photography Auckland (UICP/A).

If you are eligible to graduate (as a result of completing your programme at UCOL) you will need to apply to graduate and confirm your address so you are able to receive your award – whether it is via post or at a ceremony. You will be sent an application form with your academic record at the conclusion of your study. Please note that if you have any outstanding student debt (e.g. course fees, library fines), UCOL may withhold your award until the debt has been cleared.


Ceremony Details

Information is provided to all students who have indicated on their application forms that they will be attending graduation, via graduation packs distributed in February/March. These packs also contain items such as maps.

At the end of the ceremony, the official academic party, graduates, family/whānau and friends will enjoy refreshments at the venue.

An official photographer will be present during the ceremony to take photos of graduates receiving their award. Individuals are welcome to take photos and videos during the ceremony.


Academic Regalia

All UICP/A graduands are required to wear academic regalia (including Certificate graduands). A Korowai may be worn by Māori graduands over their black Cambridge Gown.


Academic Records

Your academic record will be sent to you on completion of your programme and will be free of charge. If you do not receive your transcript within three months of your programme completion date please let Academic Records know by emailing them at After this timeframe an additional transcript copy will cost $15.00.
