I graduated!

As the title suggests, this month’s blog is going to be about my graduation :D

I can proudly say I graduated on Wednesday 24th July 2013 at 2:45pm with an Upper Second Class Honours (2:1) in Business Psychology :)

One thing I will say is that the day itself is pretty long. You are advised to turn up an hour and a half before your allotted ceremony time, and I’d recommend you turn up even sooner – I arrived at 12:45 and had plenty of time to collect my gown, get my professional photos taken, relax and have something to eat, and get to the Chapel where my ceremony was held.

Another thing to note with regards to organisation is the importance of ordering your gown and pre-paid photography package(s) in good time. Working in the Enquiry Unit, I had one lady phone on a Tuesday saying that her ceremony was on the Thursday and that she hadn’t ordered her gown and didn’t know what to do! The University of Greenwich don’t provide the graduation gowns or professional photography (it’s all done via Ede & Ravenscroft, London's oldest tailor and robe maker: so there wasn’t much I could advise besides contacting Ede & Ravenscroft!

In order to avoid a similar situation, our students are advised to order their gowns at least three weeks prior to graduation. This gives Ede & Ravenscroft enough time to put your personalised order together and get it to the correct campus on graduation day.

So, what’s next for me? Well I have this job in the Enquiry Unit until September/October time, then after that I need to find another job! I’m thinking of doing some more clerical/administrative work until I work out what I’d really like to do; I’m toying with the idea of starting my own business, but it’s really hard work and I’m terrified of failing! I shall keep you posted on the job front! :)

To conclude this fortnight’s blog: Eric :)

Here’s how he looks now:

He’s certainly recovered well after his minor accident during transportation! :)

Until next time folks…
