Graduating? Congratulations! We recently took the oppawtunity to catch up with Harlee and find out her graduation advice to make sure your big day goes paw-fectly. #LivUniGrad #Classof2019
Don’t forget, due to an unexpected issue with the water supply, the Guild will be closed until at least Tuesday, 23 July.Therefore, gowning, ticketing, photography and those activities that would usually take place in the Guild, will take place in the Sports and Fitness Centre.
You can keep up-to-date with Harlee on Instagram (@harleethedachshund).
Make sure you collect your gown, hood and ticket from the Sports and Fitness Centre at least an hour and 15 mins before your ceremony starts!
Top Tip: Take some hair pins and safety pins to secure your hood and gown in place.
Go fetch your alumni pin badge and pen from our wonderful Alumni team. It’s their gift to you.
Top Tip: Get free print outs of your photos. Just use #LivUniGrad in your pics on social media and visit the Alumni stand in the Sports and Fitness Centre to collect a printed version of your photo.
Take deep breaths and enjoy your ceremony. This is your moment, break a paw out there!
Top Tip: You can take a handbag in with you and leave them under your chair if you need to.
After your ceremony, head over to Abercromby Square to celebrate in the Graduation Marquee.
Top Tip: Abercromby Square is one location on campus where guests without tickets can watch a live stream of your ceremony.
Keep hydrated! It’s easy to fur-get to drink water when you’re busy having fun.
Top Tip: Task your human helpers with keeping you hydrated, just like me.
Be ready for all the pup-arazzi wanting to take your photo and don’t forget to tag them using #LivUniGrad.
Why did the dog go to university? To get a pe-digree 🙂
Come rain or shine, be prepared for the weather. Look up the fur-cast a few days in advance and keep checking for updates regularly.
Top Tip: Sensible shoes are a must. You’re on your paws all day, so bring a spare pair of flats in case of an emergency.

Lots of restaurants are offering good deals for graduating students.
Gusto are offering a complimentary glass of prosecco and VIP cards with offers to use throughout the year for graduates. Look out for good offers!
Top Tip: Book early to avoid disappointment at your favourite restaurant.
Enjoy your day! You’ve worked so hard to get here, so make the most of it.
Top Tip: If you haven’t registered for your Graduation Portal yet, don’t forget! You need to register to access and share your electronic degree certificate.
