Every year, we welcome new members to the College at the prestigious Diploma Ceremony. It’s a truly memorable event and a great opportunity for newly qualified optometrists to celebrate their new professional status, renew university friendships and meet new people. We also celebrate our members’ achievements and present a range of distinguished awards, including College Fellowships, Research Excellence Awards and higher qualifications. Diplomates can invite two guests to the ceremony and the reception afterwards. The day is completely free of charge, including your gown hire. There is also the opportunity to treat yourself to a professional photograph taken by Success Photography

Who can attend?
The College invites all those who have passed their OSCE within the last 1.5 years, or have completed a higher qualification (Higher Professional Certificate or Diploma) and are a full member of the College to attend. All invitees may bring two guests to the Ceremony, completely free of charge. Additional guest tickets can be purchased at £50 per ticket. 

Please note that children under the age of 12 are NOT permitted to attend the Ceremony.
