Hats off to Massey’s class of 2018


Graduates at last year’s ceremony gather on Takapuna Beach to celebrate.


More than 1200 students will cross the stage at Takapuna’s Bruce Mason Centre next week, marking the end of their study journey and the beginning of Massey University’s graduation events for 2018.

The ceremonies start on Tuesday morning, occurring twice daily until the final ceremony on Thursday afternoon. There will also be events to celebrate Māori and Pasifika graduates on Wednesday and Thursday evening.

A total of 1221 students will graduate, including 23 with doctorates and 259 receiving master’s degrees. Graduation ceremonies will take place in Palmerston North and Wellington next month.

Look out for Massey staff who will be on hand to take photos for social media before and after each ceremony. It's a great chance to get some more casual photos with family and friends. These photos will be posted on Facebook, for students to share, like and comment on. We encourage Massey staff to engage with this content. It can be a great outlet for congratulating students, wishing them well for their next stage in life and inspiring future students.

Twitter and Instagram users attending graduation day, whether in academic robes, family, friends or staff, are encouraged to share highlights using the hashtag #MasseyGrad.

You can watch a live stream of each ceremony here.
