After the Ceremony

Before 6.00pm

Return academic dress to Ede and Ravenscroft in the James France Building. It would be appreciated if those students who attended the morning session could avoid returning their gowns between 1.00pm and 2.00pm and between 4.00pm and 4.30 pm as this will help to reduce congestion whilst students are registering for the afternoon ceremonies.
