The Hallam Fund
In the first instance, please go to My Student Record and check that we have the correct contact details for you in the 'Check and Amend My Details' section of My Student Record. If these are correct, then please contact the graduation office (email@example.com) and we will have a look into this for you.
*Please note that you will lose access to your Sheffield Hallam email address after you have completed your course so it is better that we have a personal email address to contact you on.
We suggest that you wear smart attire, as you would for an interview. As the gown hood has a loop in front designed to hook over a button which keeps it tidy and in place, it is easier if you wear a shirt, blouse or dress with a button-through front. The weight of the hood may cause a lightweight shirt or blouse to ride up. You may want to bring safety pins and/or grips to keep your hood and hat securely in place. Please don't wear jeans or t-shirts.
We recommend that you arrive at least two hours before your ceremony start time in order for you to have enough time to collect your gown and have your photographs taken etc. The Oval Hall will open approximately 45 minutes prior to your ceremony time.
If you are making a long journey, it is recommended that you check the weather forecast and reports of any roadworks along your planned route.
We recommend that you allow up to two hours for the ceremony, but most last around 1 hour and 30 minutes.
No, we do not make this information public during your graduation ceremony. You are simply asked to walk onto stage when we call your course in alphabetical order. When seated with your course, you are seated in alphabetical order.
You will be contacted before your graduation ceremony if you have won a graduation prize and this will be read out at your ceremony.
No. As there is a specific order in which you will process to the stage, you will be seated with all of the other graduates from your course in the stalls area.
Mygraduationfilm.com will be providing video coverage at your graduation ceremony, capturing your special moment on stage. There are a range of products on offer ensuring that you can re-live your day and share it with those who couldn't be there.
You can update your address in the ‘Check and amend my details’ page in the 'My Certificate and Graduation' section of My Student Record until Friday 25 October 2019. After this date, please contact the Graduation Office on 0114 225 5353.
If you have an outstanding debt relating to your programme of study, you will not be eligible to receive your certificate or attend graduation until this has been cleared.
