Graduation celebration

Our annual graduation events, alternating between Shanghai and Beijing, are a great opportunity for our newest graduates to celebrate their success.

Our President, Professor Hugh Brady, is delighted to visit Shanghai to celebrate the achievements of our graduates from July 2017 and February 2018 with family, friends, and University of Bristol staff.

This year's Graduation celebration will be hosted at the Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong, on Saturday 14 April, 11am-5pm.

Tickets are £100 for graduates, £25 per guest. This includes your gown hire, a hood you can keep, refreshments for all, and a special memento of your day.
