FAQ - RMIT Melbourne Graduation - 12th December 2018

Can I get my photos taken before ceremony day?

Yes, due to the number of students graduating in the December round we will be offering early photography days at Marvel Stadium. You can bring along family and friends on these early days as well for group photos. See below for dates and locations of these early photography days. 

We strongly recommend that you have your photos taken on an early photography day, if possible, as it gets very busy on the day. 


Can I get my photos taken on ceremony day?

Yes, our studios are available before and after the ceremony on graduation day. Studio locations at Marvel Stadium and opening hours are available below. We recommend you prebook your studio session in advance to save time on the day. 

Do I get a specific appointment time when I pre-book my photo session?

No. Due to time constraints, we can’t book in a specific time for your session. We recommend you prebook your portrait session online so you can line up at the studios with your friends and family when you arrive. If you have not prebooked, you will need to make sure you arrive as early as possible to register at our customer service desk before proceeding to the studios.
 

Before graduation

Early photography times and locations days can be found below:

Wednesday 5th - Thursday 6th & Friday 7th December (Gown and ticket collection days, additional photography)

Monday 10th & Tuesday 11th December (Additional photography, plaques and framing days)

Pre-booking your portrait session reduces your waiting time and allows us to better prepare for your arrival. The photographer will take a range of shots both of yourself in traditional portrait styles and family and friend group shots (as well as any other poses you request).

What is academic dress and how do I wear it? 

If you're graduating at a ceremony, you'll wear the traditional academic dress of black gown, a hood or a stole and a mortarboard. RMIT’s academic dress is based on the Oxford style, and exactly what you wear is determined by your program’s discipline and the level of award you receive, e.g. diploma, bachelor, master.
More information regarding academic dress is available on the RMIT website here

RMIT has created a video guide on how to wear your academic dress. The video is available here.
