Graduation ceremonies are an exciting time, marking your academic achievements and giving you the chance to celebrate this success with your loved ones. This page provides general information regarding our annual graduation ceremonies for students graduating from online programmes and their guests travelling domestically and internationally, and is also updated with important details closer to the time of the event.

20 September 2019

Time: TBD

Address: 5 St Andrew Street, Holborn, London EC4A 3AF, UK

The September 2019 graduation ceremony is for students who have successfully passed all their modules and have received their final results by 1 August 2019. If you have any queries about your eligibility, please contact us at onlinegraduates@lsbf.org.uk.

On Thursday 19th at 11.00 a.m. we’ll be running a General Walking Tour of the City for graduates and their guests. You’ll get a chance to see and learn more about some of London’s most iconic landmarks, including Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Churchill’s War Rooms, Horse Guards Parade, Nelson’s Column, Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey. We’ll also introduce you to the fascinating histories behind some of the personalities who ruled Great Britain, from Edward the Confessor to Winston Churchill. The tour will finish at the Houses of Parliament, and is approximately three hours long.

Meeting point: 11.00 a.m., Covent Garden, outside the Apple Store.

The evening before the graduation ceremony, we’ll be hosting a networking event at The Old Crown Public House, where you’ll get the chance to meet your fellow graduates from around the world and share your stories. It will be a great opportunity for you to build your professional network, as you embark on the next step of your career.

Our academics and support staff will also be attending the event, giving you the chance to talk with them about your experience. You’ll receive a welcome drink upon arrival, a delicious finger food buffet, and we’ll also be hosting a raffle with a chance for you to win some prizes.

Location: The Old Crown Public House (33 New Oxford St, Holborn, London WC1A 1BH, UK)

Date: 19th September 2019

As a Graduate, you will be required to wear academic dress for the ceremony, and we reserve the right to refuse entry to any Graduate who is not suitably attired. We would recommend that you pre-order your gown hire in advance of the ceremony. This can be ordered through the online service here: Click Here to Pre-Order Robing and Photos

To pre-order your cap (required), gown (required) and photos (optional), you can follow the link above. In the ‘Select Your Institution’ field, enter ‘LSBF’. From there, follow the prompts to fill in your details, select photo packages and make your payment. You will then need to print your confirmation and bring it with you to the ceremony.

Ede & Ravenscroft will be providing the day’s photographic service, which will take place before and after the ceremony. They will also be taking photographs during the ceremony, which you will be able to view and order online within two weeks of the event. You can order photographs both in advance, through the online service, and on the day of graduation. To save time queuing on the day, we recommend that you order and pay in advance.

All prices will be visible once the online service is open via the Ede & Ravenscroft website.

Please note that flash photography is not permitted during the ceremony.

Once you have confirmed your attendance at onlinegraduates@lsbf.org.uk, an information pack will be sent to you with information regarding booking tickets, robing and photography.

Tickets cost £50 per student. Please note, tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each Graduate is initially assigned three guest places, also on a first-come, first-served basis, and a charge of £15 will apply per ticket. Children under the age of four do not need a ticket to attend the ceremony.

Unfortunately, guests who have not purchased a ticket will not be permitted to take part in the day's activities.

If you cancel your place after purchasing tickets, we are unable to permit any refund of fees paid.
