Please wear neat, smart casual clothing and sensible shoes.
Caps and Gowns
All students are required to wear a cap and gown if they are participating in the graduation ceremonies. On your Eventbrite application to graduate, please specify your gown size.
On the day of the event, you will pick up your gown an hour before the ceremony. Gowns must be returned after the ceremony or you will be charged.
You will be allowed to keep the tassel off of your cap.
Receiving your qualification
You will receive your qualification in the mail within 30 days of completing your course. Please ensure that your postal address in our system is current. At the graduation ceremony, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement.
If you have applied, but you are not eligible to graduate, we will advise you of this and you will receive a refund. You will need to contact your teacher if you have any queries about your eligibility. If you have not completed your qualification in time to graduate, your application will be withdrawn and you will need to apply to graduate at the next ceremony.
When you purchase your tickets, if you are participating in the ceremony (you want to wear a gown and walk across the stage to receive a certificate) you must register as a graduate. If you register as a guest, you will not be participating in the ceremony.
If you have a family emergency or extenuating circumstances and are no longer able to attend the graduation, this will be assessed on a case by case basis. Additionally, if you aren’t eligible to graduate, your teacher will advise you of this and you will receive a refund. Refunds are otherwise not available.
