Graduation

Graduation is one of the most significant occasions in your university career. All your hard work over the past few years has led up to this. It’s your moment to shine. Your chance to reflect, showcase and celebrate everything you have achieved.

It’s an exciting time to graduate from SOAS. We’ve soared in the latest rankings for research excellence, and we’re featured as one of the top universities in the world. A degree from SOAS expands minds and open doors to the world of work.

But this isn't a goodbye. You'll be joining an exciting and welcoming community of SOAS Alumni, there for you in whatever you choose to do next. We can’t wait to share this momentous day with you and your guests.
