SOAS University of London graduation days are coming soon! From Wednesday 26 July to Friday 28 July.
Although attending the graduation ceremony is not essential, it is still definitely recommended to get involved. It’s not only a great day out to celebrate your achievements with friends, family and SOAS staff, but it will also help you build friendships and relationships for life too.
You should have already booked your place!
The final deadline date was on 9 July, which of course has now past, so if you have not already booked your tickets it looks like sadly you’re too late. Find out more.
Look the part on the day by hiring a gown
Make sure you order your gown asap, using the Ede & Ravenscroft website.
You’ll collect your gown on the day and be fitted for it during the registration process. Make sure you allow plenty of time for this as it can take about 1.5 hours and it will be busy! Gowning will take place in Jeffrey Hall, level one of the Institute of Education.
Please remember to return your gown to Ede and Ravenscroft before you leave SOAS.
Arriving and registering
Pick up your tickets on the day at the Registration Desk in Clarke Hall. You’ll need to bring proof of your ticket purchase and some photo ID.
