Graduation Ceremonies 2015

When you have successfully completed your degree programme you may wish to attend a SOAS Graduation Ceremony.You do not need to do this to receive your degree, but many students enjoy the opportunity to celebrate their achievements with friends, family and SOAS staff.

Ceremonies in 2015 will take place between Wednesday 22 and Friday 24th July 2015.  Each degree is pre-allocated to one of the ceremonies and it is not possible for students to elect to attend a different ceremony.  A full list of degrees to be awarded and the appropriate ceremony can be found under "Schedule" on the menu.
