July ceremonies

Prepare for your 2022 graduation


You will receive an invitation email from the graduations team confirming the date, time and location in due course. You are advised not to make any travel or accommodation arrangements until you have received this email.

Planning your day

Remember to plan your day in advance, so that you can relax and enjoy your special day. Read our step-by-step guide to be sure you will be in the right place at the right time.


You must book your tickets via OSIS when you have received the invitation email from the graduations team. Tickets for graduates are free. You can buy up to two tickets for your guests. 


We encourage graduates to wear academic dress – gown, hood and hat. It's not compulsory, but most graduates choose to dress up. You need to book your gown in advance, and further information on how to do this will be in your invitation email.


You can take photos at the ceremony but we also have a photographer on site. No need to book or pay in advance – just turn up two hours before your ceremony to join the photo queue.


To make your graduation day all the more memorable, you may want to order an official Kingston University souvenir. View the range provided by Union of Kingston Students.
