Babies and Young Children
In the interests of all patrons, babies (twelve months and under) and young children (under four years old) are permitted to attend the ceremony free-of-charge but will not be provided with a seat. For purposes of health and safety, we request that buggies/pushchairs are not set in the aisles. Titanic Belfast offer a holding area for buggies in the Britannic Suite on Level 5.
The ceremony can last up to two hours in length and understandably young children may struggle. If that is the case please feel free to exit the ceremony with your child and have a break, you are free to return to your seat at any time.
While Belfast Met does not state what style of clothes should be worn under your gown, please be advised that Graduation is a ceremonial occasion marking an important achievement in your life. You should dress appropriately for the occasion. Casual jeans, trainers, t-shirts and other casual items of clothing should be avoided.
We recommend wearing securely fitting shoes with a suitable heel height as you will be required to walk from your seat onto the stage (via stairs) during the Graduation Ceremony. Graduands who require extra assistance will not be required to walk onto the stage.
During the Graduation Ceremony you will receive a mock Graduation Certificate.
Your School has its own system for the distribution of the actual certificate and you will receive this in due course following the Graduation.
