We are pleased to announce that the summer 2018 graduation ceremonies for the School of Medicine and Dentistry (SMD) will take place on Monday 16 July, to coincide with the Rites of Passage ceremony at St Paul’s Cathedral.

The graduation ceremonies for the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences and Science and Engineering will take place in the week beginning 23 July, owing to the schedule of examinations and exam board meetings. The SMD exam boards are timetabled before the other two faculties, and as the Rites of Passage booking could not be moved, the SMD graduation ceremonies will take place a week earlier than those for the other faculties.

Staff at the university have been working with Queen Mary Students’ Union and Barts and The London Students’ Association throughout this process to ensure that medical and dental students and their friends and families are able to attend both the graduation ceremony and Rites of Passage.

More information on graduation is available at www.qmul.ac.uk/graduation.
