The 2016 London Graduation Ceremony was held on Tuesday 8 March 2016 at the Barbican Centre, London.
The Princess Royal presented Honorary Doctor of Science degrees to Dr Lee Kwok Cheong, CEO of SIM Global Education, and Dr Rolph Payet FGRS, Executive Secretary of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions.
The morning ceremony began with a speech from our Chancellor, Her Royal Highness (HRH) The Princess Royal, who congratulated graduates on their achievements.
A number of representatives from our teaching institutions also attended the reception, including Dr John Cribbin, School Secretary & Registrar for HKU SPACE, and Julie Noone, Head of Kaplan Business School.
The most enjoyable thing was in seeing such a wide range of nationalities involved at the ceremony, truly a global array of students, as well as the evident delight of the graduates in being presented for their degrees. It certainly felt like a happy occasion.
