We require a number of students every year to volunteer as either a Degree Ceremony Volunteer or a Degree Ceremony Co-ordinator at OU degree ceremonies across Europe.
Degree Ceremony Volunteer
By becoming a Degree Ceremony Volunteer you'll play an important role, providing a service that is greatly valued by students and the University alike. You'll work as part of a small team (led by a Ceremony Co-ordinator) on the Students Association merchandise stall promoting and selling OU branded merchandise to graduates and their families.
Degree Ceremony Co-ordinator
The role of a Degree Ceremony Co-ordinator is an important one and each year OUSA’s national and regional assemblies are responsible for choosing an individual student who is able to carry out this role in their area.
The responsibilities of this role include:
- notifying the Association office 6-8 weeks before the ceremony of the volunteers who will be helping on the day (in liaison with your regional or national assembly)
- ensuring that you communicate with your team members before the ceremony, making sure that they are kept fully informed and briefed regarding what is expected of them on the day
- ensuring that your team is sufficiently trained, encouraging them to visit the online training package so that they are fully prepared
- being the main point of contact for both your OU ceremony organiser and the Association office
How to apply

Please note: In the first instance we will forward your communication onto the relevant regional or national assembly.
