Information for Volunteers

Graduation is one of the most important events in the University’s calendar and is a very happy and special occasion for all those concerned.

Why we need volunteers

As a team we rely heavily on the support of staff volunteers who generously give their time to be part of graduation week. There are a variety of roles that you can get involved with to ensure the smooth running of the ceremonies.
