Graduation Ceremony

Central's Graduation Ceremony

All graduands who are made an award through the year are invited to the sole annual ceremony date each December.

As things currently stand with the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing guidelines, we are still intending to hold the 2020 ceremony on the 7th December. Completing students have been emailed on 19th June with further information explaining the caveats to this. A firm decision will be made in September so for now, we want to reassure you that we are actively planning with Southbank Centre venue staff for this ceremony to take place as originally scheduled.

At the ceremony, the School makes honorary fellowship and honorary degree presentations before taught and research degree awards are presented by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of London. We very much hope that all graduands and their guests will be able to join us in celebrating the successes of the year. 

For enquiries, please email the Graduation team at



Invitations will be sent to students who have been made an award or are due to be made an award in September with ticket, gown and photography booking information. More information will be available at that time.
