Staff Attendance at UCL Graduation Ceremonies

It is with pleasure that we invite all academic staff to attend UCL's 2016 Graduation Ceremonies and represent their department as part of the Academic Procession. It is very special to both our graduands and their guests to share this memorable occasion with the staff who have supported them throughout their time at UCL. On their behalf we do encourage you to participate in these important UCL events.
