Graduation celebration

Our annual graduation events in China are a great opportunity for our newest graduates to celebrate their success alongside friends and family.

Our Chancellor Sir Paul Nurse, and President, Professor Hugh Brady, are delighted to be visiting China to celebrate the achievements of our graduates from July 2018 and February 2019 with family, friends, and University of Bristol staff.

This year's Graduation celebration will be hosted at the Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong, on Saturday 13 April, 11am – 5pm.

Tickets are £100 for graduates, which includes gown hire and a hood you can keep; and £25 per guest. Refreshments will be provided for all. 

You can book your place via the University's online shop. If you have any queries please email
