Staff Attendance at UCL Graduation Ceremonies

It is with pleasure that we invite all academic staff to attend UCL's 2015 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.

When are the 2015 Graduation Ceremonies?

We will be holding a total of 27 graduation ceremonies this year. There will be two ceremonies on 03 July 2015 and two on 08 July 2015. These July ceremonies will be held at the Royal Festival Hall. The other 23 ceremonies will take place from 24 August 2015 - 04 September 2015 in our venue in Bedford Square Garden.

The online form has now closed. If you would like to check about joining the Academic Procession for the August and September ceremonies please email Kate Jones at

Staff who have already confirmed their attendance will get an email to confirm the arrangements for the day in July.


There will be a reception following the graduation ceremony and all members of staff attending the ceremony as part of the Academic Procession will be given access to this.

For ceremonies in July the receptions will take place in the Blue Bar and Green Bar at the Royal Festival Hall. Staff will be issued with a wristband for admission to the reception areas when they arrive at the Green Room. Further details will be sent about this once staff confirm their attendance at these ceremonies.

Receptions for the August and September ceremonies will again be held within Bedford Square Garden in a reception structure adjacent to the ceremony structure. Further details will be sent about this once staff confirm their attendance at these ceremonies.
