Planning for your graduation day

Graduation day is one of the most exciting and nerve wrecking times in a university students life. It is the culmination of three or more years of hard work and the moment when you have to decide whether you are going to carry on with your students to complete a PGCE, Masters or PhD, or go out into the world and find a job in the sector that you have qualified in. For some this will be relatively easy and for others it may be a little harder.

  • Listen. Universities always invite significant people along to give the commencement speeches. It can be tempting to switch off as you have completed your degree and no longer need to sit through long lectures. However, these speakers always have some pearls of wisdom to share with you about the next steps that you are about to take. So perk yourself up and pay attention to what they are sharing with you.
  • Celebrate. Once you have finished at your official graduation ceremony it is important that you celebrate your success. How you do this is entirely up to you but you should commemorate all the years of hard work that you have put into achieving your degree.
