I have attached the form of words and statements for opening and closing
proceedings. This also includes the award of prizes which take place
immediately after the degrees have been presented.

Subject: Formula for Admission
Swansea University are holding their inaugral ceremonies to admit
students to our own awards this July, as such we need to rework our
formula for admission. Would any of you be able to let me know what form
of words you use to admit students to their degrees during your
presentations? What is said and what the reponse from the Presiding
Officer is? Also do any of you use statements to formally open and close
proceedings? If so what are these.
Many thanks for your assistance in advance.
