Students should arrive at His Majesty’s Theatre between 30-60 minutes before the start of your ceremony. Once you have registered you will be directed to your allocated seat. You should be wearing your gown and hood before the ceremony starts. RGU ushers will be on hand to guide you through the ceremony and direct you to the stage when it is time to receive your award.

When you proceed to the stage, do not take anything up on the stage with you, this includes your hat. Your hat must be left at your seat with any other belongings, as you will return to the same seat after you have received your award.

At the end of the ceremony you should vacate the building promptly. You will have the opportunity to meet your friends and family outside the building.

There will be a drinks reception after each ceremony at Soul Bar on Union Street. Each Graduand will receive complimentary drinks vouchers at His Majesty’s Theatre, along with your certificate when registering for your ceremony. The Student Union will have a stall at Soul Bar where you will have the opportunity to purchase RGU branded merchandise, and the Alumni and Employability teams will be there to answer any questions you have.

Enjoy the ceremony, it is your special day!
