Invitation to process at Summer Graduation Ceremonies

Summer Graduation Ceremonies will be held on Tuesday 1, Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 July in Bath Abbey.

Academic, research and administration staff
All academic, research and administration staff are invited to process in the academic procession from the Guildhall to the Abbey. If you are a member of staff and you would like to process in the academic procession, please log on to the ceremony management system.

The closing date for registering attendance at the ceremonies and for booking gowns is Wednesday 11 June 2014. Please note that registering to process after this date will not be possible.

Hire of robes
Staff processing at graduation ceremonies must wear academic robes and hats. If you plan to process at a ceremony and do not have your own robes, you can order your robes at the same time as you register your attendance at the ceremony. The robe hire company will not guarantee matching academic dress for overseas degrees but will provide an alternative.  If we receive your procession form after Wednesday 11 June we will not be able to order you a gown and hat and you will be unable to attend the academic procession. 

Academic dress
When wearing academic dress, it is recommended to wear a suit, dark socks, dark shoes, shirt and tie or a dress or skirt with a shirt or blouse and dark shoes.
