Watch Graduation live

Colchester Campus

Flashback to last year's Graduation

This year, the University of Essex’s Graduation ceremonies will once again be streamed live on the website for all to see.

• Watch Graduation 2013 live online

The live coverage will enable friends and family of Essex students, who are unable to attend the Graduation ceremonies, to join in the celebrations from anywhere in the world.

Last year, the live webcast proved to be a great success with 28.625 hits, and was even viewed as far away as Auckland, New Zealand, some 11,356 miles from the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall where the ceremonies take place.

This year’s Graduation at Essex will see 2,745 students graduate ΜΆ the University’s biggest Graduation ever held. The 11 ceremonies will be held over four days next week, from Tuesday 16 July to Friday 19 July and will be the 11th and final Graduation presided over by our current Chancellor, Lord Phillips of Sudbury.

Among the distinguished individuals receiving Honorary Degrees will be internationally-acclaimed singer/songwriter and human rights activist Annie Lennox, double Olympic gold medallist cyclist Laura Trott and Master of the Rolls Lord Dyson.

A timetable of the graduation ceremonies, including the Honorary Graduands, can be found on the graduation webpage.

A free live screening of the Graduation ceremonies will also take place for any guests without ceremony tickets, or those with young children, in the Lecture Theatre Building and Square 2 on campus.
