The ceremonies

Your graduation ceremony takes place at the Rose Theatre in Kingston. The ceremony itself will last approximately one hour and 15 minutes, but times do vary.

After your ceremony come along to your ceremony reception at the Guildhall opposite the Rose Theatre. It is a great way to celebrate with your friends, family, academics and fellow graduates and is well deserved after all your hard work.
