- Graduands are requested to be at the REC for rehearsal 90 minutes before the ceremony starts. Doors will be closed 30 minutes before the ceremony starts.
You will be distributed a name card at the rehearsal. Make sure you keep it during the ceremony. It is essential that you sit in the seat allocated to you, and that you remain in the correct order. For the presentation of your testamur (degree), you will be guided onto the stage by our ushers. Specific details will be provided in the rehearsal before the ceremony.
- For guests: Guests should make their way over to the Recreation & Event Complex to take your seats 30 minutes before the ceremony starts. The guests will need to show your tickets at the entrance to enter the event hall.
- During the ceremony: Your graduation ceremony will last for approximately one hour. Click here to view and download the event rundown (to be updated). All participants are required to wear masks all the time, except when you come to the stage to receive your certificate.
Please inform your guests that they are not permitted to approach the stage area to take photos during the ceremony as this impedes the movement of graduates to and from the stage. Professional photographers will be taking photos at the ceremony, including when you receive your testamur on stage.
- After the ceremony: At the end of the ceremony, you will follow the Academic Procession out of the hall for the official photograph, as directed by the ushers. Take any valuables with you.
Please remember to collect your gift bag and return your gown to designated sign.
Congratulations again - You’re now a graduate of RMIT University!
