Accredited photographers, provided by Success Photography, will be present on the day of the admission ceremony. We encourage members to submit an order online in advance of the ceremony via the Success Photography website.
The day of the admission ceremony
You are advised to arrive at least 1 hour before your scheduled ceremony in order to collect your robe, arrange photographs and enjoy your time at the College with your colleagues, family and friends.
You will then be called to be seated in the Nuffield Hall 15 minutes before the start of the ceremony (it may not be possible to admit you if you are late).
During the ceremony each Member will be called to the main platform by a member of Council where they will be presented with their certificate by the President.
An ‘on the stage’ photograph will be taken of every new Member with the President during the Ceremony, which can be purchased direct from Success Photography.
All Members and their guests are warmly invited to attend a drinks and canapés reception in the Reception Hall following the ceremony.
College ties and insignia will be on sale in the reception foyer.
