Most postgraduates choose to attend the university’s formal graduation ceremony which is a spectacular event, with processions, academic robes and great ceremony. It is the perfect opportunity for the university, the students and their families and friends to celebrate together.
Most postgraduate students make close personal friendships and strong professional links on their programme and keeping in touch after graduation is important, for both personal and professional reasons, particularly when friends and contacts may return to their homes around the world.
Many international postgraduate students have to return to their home country soon after finishing their programme. Home and EU students also often have to return to their parents' home for financial reasons. Here we look at how to adjust to this stage in your life.
