WHERE DO I ORDER GOWNS?
We encourage all graduates to wear academic dress. This comprises a gown, hood and mortarboard.
You must order your gown hire in advance from the LMA supplier, J. Wippell & Co. This can be done via their online hire shop J. Wippell & Co will be open for bookings from 9/5/23 until the 30/6/23 (The full set price is £39 gown, hood and hat)
Please have the following details ready:
- chest measurement
- hat size (circumference of your head taken just above your ears)
- the date of your ceremony
- your qualification
WHERE AND WHEN SHOULD I COLLECT MY GOWN?
You will be able to collect your gown from the ‘Welcome and Registration’ area at LMA in the Metquarter on the 13/7/23. We recommend that you arrive 60 – 90 minutes ahead of the start of your ceremony to register, collect your gown and make your way to Liverpool Town Hall.
Staff will be available to help you into your robes and show you how to position the hood.
The gown is yours to keep for the day, but must be returned back to the Metquarter no later than 5pm. If you fail to do so you will be charged by the supplier not LMA.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
The award ceremony is a formal occasion and we encourage graduates to dress appropriately. You will find it useful to wear a buttoned top to which the academic hood can be fastened, or alternatively bring some small safety pins to affix the button-loop of the hood to your clothes. Hair pins are also useful to secure the mortar board (hat).
WILL GRADUATES BE PHOTOGRAPHED AS THEY CROSS THE STAGE?
All students will be photographed as they cross the stage and receive their certificates. These photos will be available for FREE and shared with all Graduates one week after the event via their LMA email addresses.
You are allowed to capture your own photographs and videos, before, during and after the ceremony.
CAN I DEFER UNTIL NEXT YEAR?
It will not be possible to defer to a future ceremony.
HOW MANY GUESTS CAN I BRING?
Guest tickets are currently limited to three per student, this is to ensure that we can comfortably accommodate all graduates’ guests in the ceremony hall.
All students must accept their own attendance to Graduation in advance of the ceremony. This can be done via the link that has been sent to your LMA email address.
Tickets will be available week commencing 9/5/23 – 30/6/23 via an Eventbrite link which will be emailed to all students
