  • Flash photography is not allowed in the Great Hall and cell phones must be switched off during the ceremony.
  • Kindly ensure that your guests are seated at least 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony. Guests who arrive once the ceremony has started will NOT be allowed into the Great Hall and will be guided to an overflow area from where they can watch a live broadcast of the ceremony.
  • Vuvuzelas, whistles or any noise-emitting instrument is strictly prohibited and will be confiscated in the Great Hall.
  • In keeping with the formal nature of our graduation ceremonies, we would like to remind you that the dress code is formal and respectable.
