Costing us £22 each to see daughter's graduation ceremony! ohmy.gif Have they always charged? My sister doesn't think my parents paid anything when she graduated in 1981. We get one glass of wine, red or white, or a soft drink and a few nibbles but I think it's dear. They hire a cathedral apparently and they charge a hefty fee. The house of God should be free. tongue.gif

Do all unis charge and how much?

It also didn't cost £9000 each year to go to University in 1981.

Well they say most of it, apart from them buying wine and nibbles, is going to the cathedral's fee. They don't have a hall big enough.

And what's worse, they give them a mandatory vaccine as soon as they step off the stage!

Spadz, not everything is a government conspiracy kink.gif

I think for my HND every student could only get two tickets and I'm pretty sure they were £25 each and if you wanted more (which ended up not being available) it was an additional £5. When you think about it as a once in a lifetime thing and supporting someone you love, it's not that bad when most people would pay that for a concert or something.

Yeah people pay 2 or 3 times that for concert tickets for very big artists.

It'll be WAY more than £22 when you have the gown hire + photo costs as well kink.gif it's a tad overpriced, but it's worth it just for that special day (or two in my case with my MA magic.gif)

University =/= Government tho. They are all independent charities. (Fiercely independent just as Holyrood how they got on trying to reform how the executive committee for Unis is formed)

If you think of it from the perspective that it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one of the best achievements of your daughter's life so far, it's really not that much! If you take away the snacks and the wine you're only paying ~£15 each, which REALLY isn't too much for an adult.

Indeed, uncalled for. RosaParksMyCar was rude in one of his replies to me to recently. Hope this is not a growing trend!

Anyway that £22 cost may be even higher after Brexit, Common Sense laugh.gif so be glad it is now you are paying biggrin.gif
