Future ceremony dates

Information for all future degree Congregations ceremonies

The following dates are correct at the time of publishing. Although highly unlikely, the University reserves the right to amend these dates accordingly. Ceremonies held at Canterbury Cathedral are provisionally booked up until November 2016. Rochester Cathedral bookings are made on an annual basis so we apologise that we are unable to offer the dates more than one year in advance. As soon as we allocate the ceremonies, we will publish the dates here.

Once you’ve found the time of your ceremony, see what you’ll need to do next with our graduation checklist.

You can book accommodation on the Canterbury campus for your graduation ceremony. For more information and to book please click here.
