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.

When the ceremonies take place

  • You will receive an invitation email from the graduations team confirming the date and time of your graduation ceremony. You are advised not to make any travel or accommodation arrangements until you have received this email. The University cannot be held liable for any costs incurred for travel or accommodation.
  • Everyone who achieves an award in their final year is invited to a graduation! If you have received your results (on OSIS) by Wednesday 27 June 2018, we'd love it if you could come to your ceremony taking place between 20 – 26 July 2018.
  • There are exceptions, so you are advised to wait until you have received your invitation email.
