London South Bank University (LSBU) organises a number of graduation ceremonies each year for students who have successfully completed their course of academic study.

Two ceremonies take place on each day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The duration of the ceremony is approximately 90 minutes, followed by a celebratory reception which lasts approximately one hour. Graduates need to arrive up to two hours before their graduation to give themselves time to collect their ticket and gown and have their photograph taken.

Book your guest tickets now, ensuring you are booking tickets for the correct ceremony. If in doubt, please check which ceremony the graduand you are accompanying is graduating in.

Event information

Ceremonies take place in the Royal Festival Hall Auditorium at 11am and 3pm, with a running time of 90mins. The timing of your graduation depends on the course of study.
