Primary page content

This ceremony is for those who were due to graduate in summer 2020 and winter 2020.

If you are an international student with a tier 4 visa, that is due to expire in March 2022, you can attend these events instead of the events planned to take place in April 2022.

Dates

Saturday 29 January 2022
Sunday 30 January 2022
Monday 31 January 2022

The exact date and time for your allocated ceremony will be available on the booking platform.

Please note, although we are currently planning for your graduation ceremony to take place on the dates above, we will also follow government guidance in relation to Covid-19 at the time which may mean we need to make late changes to these plans. We will communicate any changes to plans as quickly as possible.

Venue

Your graduation ceremony is scheduled to take place at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre opposite Westminster Abbey.

This was the location of our last round of graduation ceremonies and whilst we appreciate some of you may be disappointed at not being able to graduate on campus, the venue will also help us to deliver the event as safe as possible within the context of Covid-19.

Booking

You will soon receive an email inviting you to book your place once the booking portal has been launched.

We will email your alumni email and the personal email address we had in My Goldsmiths when you left Goldsmiths.

If you have changed your email address since leaving Goldsmiths contact us at graduation (@gold.ac.uk). Include you student number and the programme you studied so we can locate you.

Graduation Webinar

On Wednesday 27 October we'll host a live graduation webinar on Zoom, between 12pm and 1pm. If you would like to join and have your questions answered, please book your place by completing the online form.

Guest tickets

There is a limit to two guest tickets per graduate (children under the age of five are allowed to attend without a ticket so long as they are small enough to remain in a pram or sit on a guest’s lap).

The limit of two guest tickets will help us to deliver the event safely for all graduates, guests and staff.

What happens at a graduation ceremony

At your graduation ceremony, you will have the opportunity to wear academic dress, cross the stage and have your name read aloud, take photographs with our official graduation photography partners, and be able to attend a reception with your guests afterwards.

The reception will take place directly after your ceremony; included in the guest ticket price will be a couple of glasses of bubbly matched with a delicious selection of cakes (including a vegan option).

The ceremony and following reception will last approximately two hours in total.

If you cannot attend

If you cannot attend your scheduled graduation ceremony, you are welcome to book for a future ceremony. Details will be confirmed and shared at a later date.

Please note, there may be changes at future ceremonies (such as venues or agenda).
