Volunteer at graduation this May!


Imperial graduations are some of the largest graduations in Europe, welcoming nearly 28,000 graduands, guests and staff to the South Kensington campus. It is an occasion for students, staff and graduands across all networks and faculties to get together and celebrate our achievements as an institution.
