OOPS!

Graduation #FAILS… And Top Tips On How To Avoid!

With the start of #CovGraduation a mere weekend away, the excitement and anticipation of students having their big Day will be BUBBLING away nicely…

It’s a day you’ve been working towards for the past 3, 4 or even 5 years. Family, friends, course mates and tutors, will gather to celebrate the incredible achievement that is receiving your degree. Alumni from years gone by will speak of how graduation day is the standout moment from their time at University.

And now this is your time to have that moment.
This is when it will all become worth it.
This is when you can finally turn round and say “I did it”.
This is when you pray you don’t fall flat on your face!

Yes, graduation may well be the best day of your student life, but the fear is real that it could also be the day you have THAT embarrassing moment – which will live on in the memory far longer than your grad-cap throwing picture! The internet is full of videos, GIF’s, memes and pics showcasing the best (worst) graduation fails from ceremonies gone by. So, after much ‘research’, here’s a selection of our favourites, along with little bits of advice so you don’t end up like these lot!
