Should be some information here: https://portal.uea.ac.uk/graduationoffice

I'll tag the official rep, University of East Anglia and I've moved this thread to University of East Anglia (UEA)

Congratulations :woo:

Hi efloblo98,



I graduated at UEA last July. Our graduation was at Norwich City’s ground whereas yours is taking place at the Sportspark. But apart from that, I think they’re likely to be very similar. The main event is your school’s graduation ceremony. This is the bit where all graduating students go up on stage one by one and receive their diplomas from the head of school with friends and family watching on. This usually takes a couple of hours because they also confer honorary degrees and the recipients of these will give speeches about their lives and careers. It can be quite nerve-wracking waiting to go up and receive your degree on stage but it’s a rewarding moment. Before this part, you’ll have a chance to get your gown and mortarboard on, as well as to chat with course friends and teachers as you wait around. Afterwards, people tend to take photographs wearing their gowns and holding their certificates with family and friends. There will also be a reception where you’ll be able to celebrate with course friends and staff. Afterwards, many people either go out for drinks or dinner with visiting friends / family, or meet up with course friends to celebrate. Norwich is full of people visiting for graduation week and it’s a nice time to go out and celebrate. There’s a real celebratory atmosphere around the whole day and it’s a nice chance to enjoy the feeling of finishing your degree.
