Congregations are an important day for candidates and their families. To ensure that each ceremony runs smoothly, it is essential that as many colleagues as possible kindly offer their valuable assistance and support.
There are two ways that staff can get involved:
- Academic Procession - members of academic staff can take part in the Procession. Staff are encouraged to participate at those ceremonies where students they have taught or supervised will be presented. Registrations for the July 2013 Congregations will open in due course. Please complete the on-line form.
- Marshals - support staff can volunteer to marshal at the ceremonies. This involves a variety of roles from issuing tickets to candidates, and welcoming guests, to hooding the candidates before they cross the stage. Refreshments will be available to marshals throughout the duration of the ceremonies, and meal vouchers are given as a thank-you for volunteering. The marshal volunteer form for the July 2013 Congregations will be available in due course. Please complete the On-Line form (once it is activated).
