Graduation

We are delighted to announce that the Graduation ceremonies for the class of 2022 will take place on 19 and 20 July 2022. The ceremonies will be held on campus at Regent's University London.  

You will receive further information in your Graduation ceremony invitation via an email sent to your University and personal email address on the week commencing 28 March 2022.  

Graduates who were awarded before September 2021  

We understand that some countries were on the red and amber lists for UK travel from abroad, making it more difficult to travel to the UK in 2021. As part of this year's ceremony, we have allocated some places to previous graduates who were unable to attend their ceremony in September 2021.

The deadline for applications to attend in July 2022 has now passed. If you have any queries please contact [email protected].

Graduates who are awarded after June 2022  

Students who are not fully awarded their degree following exam boards held in June 2022 will not be able to attend the graduation ceremonies in July 2022. 

Please see our Graduation FAQs for answers to common questions about the ceremony, guest tickets, the Graduation Ball and more.

Details of arrival times have been sent to all confirmed graduates. We ask you to arrive earlier than the start time of the ceremony to allow all graduates and guests enough time to register, collect tickets, gown and take comfort breaks before the ceremony. Please be aware, any latecomers risk missing their ceremony.

Registration

Upon arrival to the main entrance, staff will direct you to register in Herringham Hall.

You will be issued a name card that you must keep with you at all times, this will have your seat number. Please note, that you cannot change your seat number as it relates to order of the graduate roll call and you will need to hand over your name card to the member of staff during the Ceremony when you are called upon to walk across the stage.

Once registered, you will be directed to the Darwin rooms for gowning. You will then need to make your way to the ceremony marquee on Tuke Lawns.

The Ceremony

You and your guests must be seated at least 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony. If you are late to your ceremony it will start in your absence and you risk missing your change to walk at graduation.

The Master of Ceremonies will provide graduates and guests with some brief instructions at the start of the event.

Ceremonies are opened by the entrance of the Academic Procession. The Chair of the Board will declare the ceremony open; there will be a brief welcome from the Vice Chancellor before the graduands are presented in programme order. Therefore, you must sit in your allocated seats until the ceremony ends.

Regent’s University staff will assist you when it is your time to walk.

The Chair of the Board will declare the ceremony over, after which the Academic Procession will stand and exit.

What happens after the ceremony?

You will lead out row by row after the Academic Procession has left and will be directed to the Lower Lawns for a light Drinks and Canapés Reception.
