Hi,

I’m just wondering how common it is not to recieve your certificate on graduation and have it posted to you after you graduate.

This has happened to several of my friends who have graduated.

I thought that would be the norm.

Seriously? What’s the point of graduating if you don’t get the certificate at the ceremony???

It's pretty much the norm to get the certificate in the post. The point of the graduation ceremony I guess is just to have it publicly recognised that you've graduated, get the photos of yourself in academic dress, and a celebration to have with your friends and family.

You don't have to go if you don't want to though. I didn't bother with my undergraduate graduation-didn't see the point as my parents wouldn't have been able to come from abroad-though I did go to my masters graduation because it was in the Royal Albert Hall; I guess that was pretty cool, and there was a nice champagne thing after, but the actual ceremony was boring as anything and went on forever (should have escaped once I'd gone up on stage and gone to the pub with my family like one of my course mates did). It can also get really expensive-gown hire and sometimes guest tickets at a minimum (many unis give a number of free ones and you only pay for extra guests, others you have to pay for all the tickets for your guests), plus if you want to have professional photos done that's more cost.

That you get to go to the ceremony and get pics taken with your friends and parents?
You have already graduated in reality because of passing your exams.
Same as A levels when you get the results on the day.

Why are you having such a hissy fit over this?

Unusual and the first ive heard of that. The norm I believe is not to, so when you get your picture taken with the scroll it is just blank.
I can think of several reasons why its better not to get it on the day.
