This year’s November graduation ceremonies will take place in Rochester Cathedral on 23 November and Canterbury Cathedral on 25 November.

Attended by students and their guests, as well as University staff, these ceremonies are an opportunity for everyone to celebrate our most recent graduates in two of the UK’s most iconic locations.

The University will also award honorary degrees to two remarkable individuals:

  • Harriet Wistrich (Canterbury), who will be made a Doctor of Laws in recognition of her inspirational career and significant contribution to women’s justice and the protection and advancement of the human rights of women and girls
  • Dame Stephanie Shirley (Canterbury), who will be made a Doctor of the University in recognition of her exceptional contribution to business and philanthropy.
