Graduation

Book Your Tickets

If you wish to attend, you must book a place for yourself and your guests.The final deadline for booking is Friday 11th July 2014

You will not be able to attend if you have not booked and we strongly recommend that you book as early as possible. 

Tickets cost £15 for graduands and £25 for guests. This includes the reception after the ceremony. Reception-only tickets will be sold on the day for £15 (payable by credit card or cheque).

If you are in your final year, you should not wait for your results. We will be happy to refund the cost of tickets if you or any of your guests are unable to attend, so long as you inform us before the booking deadline (see also the Refund Policy section below).

You can book places for yourself and up to three guests. If there are spare seats after bookings close, we will allocate additional guest tickets to those that made the earliest bookings. 

Guests without seats in the main graduation hall are very welcome to come to SOAS with you on the day of your ceremony. They will be able to watch the event by video link in the Viewing Suite.  Reception only tickets will also be available for purchase on the day. 

Please note that children under the age of 10 will not be admitted to the main graduation hall. They are however welcome to sit in the viewing suite if accompanied by an adult.

CeDEP Masters Graduands

Please note that if you are graduating from a CeDEP Masters programme, you are invited to the graduation ceremony, but you will not be able to book your tickets online.  We have a manual system set up for these programmes and you will receive an email from us providing you with details on what you need to do.
