I am particularly proud of each and every one of you and look forward to congratulating you at your Graduation ceremony.

On behalf of everyone at Hope, enjoy your day and I wish you every success for the future.

PGCE/PGDE students

Final results for candidates will be published in the Student Records Management system (SRM) on Monday 10th July. 

 

What do I do now?

Confirm your attendance

A message has been sent to your ‘in-tray’ in the SRM system asking you to confirm your attendance at the ceremony. You must do this no later than Monday 5th June.

If you do not confirm your attendance, by this date, we will assume that you do not wish to attend the ceremony in person and your award will be conferred in your absence.

Please ensure that you complete the task, even if you will not be attending the ceremony, so that we can check our records and can post your certificate to you.

 

Order your cap and gown

You must order your cap and gown from Ede and Ravenscroft no later than Friday 9th June. You can do this online at www.gownhire.co.uk. You should be aware that you will be asked to remove your Cap and Hood when you arrive at the Cathedral as you will be formally “Hooded” when you cross the Platform to be conferred to your degree.

 

Book your Graduation photographs

Ede and Ravenscroft offers a professional portrait service for both individuals and groups. They will attend the Graduation day events and will set up a studio in Hope Park Sports, Hope Park, from 8.30am to 7pm.

To avoid queuing you can book photography in advance at www.edeandravenscroft.co.uk

 

Not sure if you can attend?

Under University rules, candidates are required to attend in person to be admitted to their award, but sympathetic consideration will be given to an application for admission in absentia.

If you do not know whether you will be able to attend the ceremony, you should complete the online booking form on the assumption that you will be present to receive you’re award in person. If you subsequently wish to be admitted in absentia, or defer your ceremony to a later date, you must email graduation@hope.ac.uk no later than Monday 5th June.

You should assume that applications for admission in absentia have been approved unless you hear to the contrary. After the ceremonies, the certificate and a copy of the appropriate programme will be posted to you by registered mail. Students who initially apply to be admitted to their degrees in absentia and who subsequently change their mind and wish to attend the ceremonies to be admitted to their award in person, should be aware that whilst every effort will be made to allow them to do so, it may not always be possible.

 

Student Debtors

Students who owe more than £200 of academic debt to Liverpool Hope University will not be allowed to graduate, either in person or in absentia, until the debt has been paid (this includes library fines and outstanding book loans).

If you find yourself in this position, at the earliest possible opportunity, please contact:

  • a member of the Finance Team on 0151 291 3339
  • for library fines a member of the Library Team on 0151 291 2000

We would therefore encourage you to leave your car on site at Hope Park and to travel to the Cathedral by taxi or public transport.

Final admittance to the Cathedral is 2.30pm.

Following recent events in Manchester and London security measures at Liverpool Cathedral have had to be been tightened. You should be aware that there will be bag searches before entrance to the cathedral is permitted so we would ask that you limit what you bring with you. This means that it may take longer for the congregation to be seated. You are asked to anticipate this and to leave plenty of time for entry to the Cathedral. Please note that entrance will only be permitted on the production of your graduation ticket (so please don't leave these in your bag in the boot of your car!).
