For all you 3rd year UG students (and some 2nd year PG students), next week is graduation time! As you’re all mega organised and super on-the-ball, you’re probably all set for the day you dress up like you were in Harry Potter and receive the most expensive piece of paper you’ll ever hold, but just in case you’re not, here’s the SUARTS Graduation Checklist…
Where am I going?
All UAL graduation ceremonies take place in the Royal Festival Hall in the Southbank. Swish.
When am I going?
Different colleges graduate on different days. Here’s the timetable:
Monday 14th July
11.30am: Chelsea College of Arts
3.00pm: Camberwell College of Arts, Wimbledon College of Arts
Tuesday 15th July
11.00am: London College of Fashion: School of Design and Technology; School of Graduate Studies; CLTAD
3.00pm: London College of Fashion: School of Management and Science; School of Media and Communication
Wednesday 16th July
11.00am: Central Saint Martins: Art; Culture and Enterprise; Graphic Communication Design; Drama and Performance
3.00pm: Central Saint Martins: Fashion; Jewellery and Textiles; Product, Ceramic and Industrial Design; Spatial Practices
Thursday 17th July
11.00am: London College of Communication: School of Design
3.00pm: London College of Communication: School of Media
Have I registered?
Unfortunately you can’t just rock up to this event just because you’ve spent 3 years working to get that piece of paper. Weird. You have to register your attendance via UAL, and pay a fee too.
Have I got my robes?
To graduate, you’ll need to wear the official robes, which you need to rent. Book your robes here, and pay another fee.
Can I get a photo?
There will be an official photographer in place on the day of your graduation, and seeing as UAL (like most universities) take a Ryanair approach to graduation, you’ll have to pay for that too. Make sure you and your family/friends/classmates bring your own cameras so you can document your big day on the cheap.
Can I bring people?
You can bring friends and family to your graduation, tickets for them cost £28 and can be bought via UAL.
What if I don’t want to/can’t go?
If you’ve already left London or don’t fancy forking out for the full graduation experience, you don’t have to go. Your degree parchment will be sent to you over the summer and you can watch a live stream of the event from the comfort of your own home.
If you do come along to graduation, keep an eye out for SUARTS! We’ll be selling UAL merch for you to mark your time here (pretty cheaky after all that moaning about the cost of graduation, we know…) as well as asking you to tell us about your UAL memories and advice for incoming students. If you see us, give us a wave!Comments

Out of Our Heads is an exhibition exploring art, hallucinations and perception, both from artistic and scientific perspectives. It runs until 29th June in Shoreditch Town Hall and features work from UAL students. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area.
Accompanying the show is a talk in LCF John Prince’s Street on Thursday evening entitled Art & Mental Health. The panel discussion will explore the relationship between the arts and mental health disorders. Issues such as the belief that creativity is related and conducive to mental health or the therapeutic character of the arts on people who suffer from mental ill health will be covered. The discussion will include specialists from the fields of art, science and art education. Charles Walker MP a campaigner in fighting the social stigma surrounding mental ill health will add to the discussion by covering topics relating to mental health policy and initiatives. The talk will run from 6 - 9pm, including a drinks reception.Comments
