About graduation

Personal Finance Society qualifications are recognised throughout the world as evidence of commitment, knowledge and understanding. They underpin professional integrity and support the delivery of service to the customer. The graduation ceremony will reflect this and publicly acknowledge your achievement.

During the service all graduates will be required to stand and say the Graduation Oath.

Attendance for you and your guest is complementary. Each ceremony lasts approximately one hour and is followed by celebratory drinks and light catering. You are not required to be robed and gowned for the ceremony, but there is a professional photography service at each event so that you can have the occasion recorded wearing full appropriate regalia. There are also photographs taken of all delegates receiving their scrolls on stage from the President of the Personal Finance Society which can be purchased after the graduation day.
