Graduation 2015

Here at University Centre at Blackburn College we strive to make your graduation special. These web pages are designed to provide you with all of the information that you need in relation to your ceremony.

We’ve also put together a Student Protocol that you can download to refer to again and again. You may wish to use our Graduation Checklist to ensure you’ve completed all the necessary tasks in order to graduate.

On the day there will be 3 ceremonies, 11am; 2pm and 5pm. Which ceremony you attend will depend on which course you have completed and which School your course falls into.

Please note that the time of the ceremony is the official start time, there will be other deadlines during the day e.g. for registering and collecting your gown, so please make sure you allow adequate time for these. Late registration may result in you not being permitted to attend the ceremony. Late attendance (by both graduands and guests) on the day will result in you not being permitted entry to the ceremony.

  • 11am students from the School of Arts and Society 
  • 2pm students from the School of Health, Science & Technology 
  • 5pm students from the School of Business, Law & Education
