Graduation is one of the high points in the academic year. It is the opportunity for our students, alongside their families and staff to celebrate their acheivement.

If you are reading this page, you will have received an invitation inviting you to graduate at this year’s Graduation Ceremony which will take place on Friday 22 September at St Mary's Church in Bridgwater.


Registering your Attendance

We require all those graduating to complete our Registration Form as soon as possible. This is vital to ensure the information on certificates and programmes is correct and that we allocate enough space for your guests.

Once you have completed the online registration form you will need to book your official academic gown and official photographs (optional) via the Ede & Ravenscroft website.


Registering on the Day

Due to the amount of students we have graduating this year, we will be holding two ceremonies. You are not able to choose which graduation ceremony you attend (1pm or 5pm), but you will need to attend the ceremony allocated to your course, please see the tables below.

We ask you to arrive in plenty of time before your ceremony in order for you to register, obtain your graduation gown, have your official photographs taken (if required) and to celebrate with your classmates, friends and family.


After your Ceremony

Following the ceremony you and your guests are invited to Bar 27 for a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink and we would be delighted if you could join us there. Please note that this is not compulsory, if you wish to make your own arrangements please feel free to do so. Details of some local restaurants can be found in our Graduation Frequently Asked Questions.
