Upcoming ceremonies

Ceremony dates for the Winter and Summer graduation ceremonies

Student smiling at graduation

Graduation ceremonies are held three times a year:

  • July for students who have followed undergraduate or nine-month taught postgraduate degree programmes
  • December for students who have followed twelve-month taught postgraduate degree programmes
  • Unfortunately there will be no ceremony taking place in Beijing in August 2023. Please check next year for information about future ceremonies.

MPhil/PhD research students are presented at both the July and December ceremonies (please see below for further information).

Department schedule

Departments will be allocated specific days/times shortly after bookings close. This is usually around March for the summer ceremonies and mid September for the winter ceremonies.

Once finalised, a link to the schedule will be posted on this web page.

Research students

MPhil/ PhD research students must be awarded by 30 April to be invited to the July ceremonies, and 30 September to be invited to the December ceremonies.
