Vote of Thanks

A short speech, the Vote of Thanks, is given by a graduate during their awards ceremony to thank the people who have contributed to their success. The three-minute speech is delivered in front of around 800 guests and graduates seated in the auditorium at the Rose Theatre.

There is one Vote of Thanks speaker at each graduation ceremony. The graduate should thank their fellow students, university staff (academic, technical, support and administrative), their families and friends as well as talk positively about their experience at Kingston University.

Applications for July 2024 are not yet open.
