On the Day

Please make sure that you arrive at Fraserburgh Campus in plenty of time!

Car Parking

Visitors may use the College car parks. There is limited parking in the surrounding streets but we ask that you are mindful of our neighbours and do not cause any obstructions.


Registration opens at the Fraserburgh Campus from 9:30am. Once registered you will be directed to the robing and photography area which will be located in Library+.


At 10:30am Graduands will be asked to move into designated rooms to be lined up for their ‘Grand Entrance’.

Guests are free to sit in any area which is not reserved. Cameras are allowed, but we ask that you refrain from using flash photography. Telephones should be switched off or on silent mode.

Guests should be seated by 10:45am at the latest.

The ceremony will commence at 11:00am.

The Ceremony

When the ceremony is about to commence guests will be asked to stand for the arrival of the Graduands followed by the Academic Procession. Once the Academic Procession is seated you will be asked to sit and the ceremony will commence.

The ceremony should take approximately 60 minutes.

Immediately after the ceremony, you will be asked to stand as the Academic Procession leaves.

Graduates will then be asked to make their way out of the atrium, in order, starting from the first row facing the stage. Once the Graduates have all left, guests can follow behind them to the reception area.

Celebratory Reception

To celebrate your achievement, you and your guests are warmly invited to join us for a glass of something fizzy (or soft drink) and cake which will be served at the back of the atrium.
