Students from all over the world arrived in London for the sole reason of attending their graduation ceremony. We wanted the ceremony to be one that they will remember for years to come.

The 13th and 14th of September marked the days when London School of Marketing held its annual graduation ceremony in London, United Kingdom. The school which has been operating in the education industry since 2007, is partnered with Anglia Ruskin University to offer students from around the globe the opportunity to gain British qualifications at the comfort of their own home.

The London School of Marketing Graduation ceremony is quite a remarkable occasion as it is an event where students from numerous nationalities meet in London to celebrate their educational accomplishments. Therefore, the LSM management decided that a conventional graduation would not do the event justice.

The school known for its unorthodox approaches in the educational industry, held a truly unique graduation ceremony where students felt less restricted with the usual, rigid graduation formalities and provided more opportunity for the graduates to enjoy their big day with friends and family.

Gimhani Gunasinghe, Head of the Marketing and Corporate Reputation at LSM stated the following, “An unconventional graduation ceremony means more fun and more memories. These students have worked hard for their degrees and a graduation ceremony should allow them the opportunity to enjoy it with their loved ones!”

Firstly, a landmark location in London, the iconic O2 arena, was selected as the venue for the graduation ceremony. On the much awaited day, graduates, family and friends all donned their Sunday best and arrived at the arena with their faces beaming with pride and happiness.

The ceremonies allowed students to receive their awards up on the graduation stage from the Pro Vice Chancellor (Partnerships) of Anglia Ruskin University, in the presence of their friends and family. The graduates were given plenty of time on stage to enjoy and treasure the moment, giving their loved ones ample time to snap away numerous pictures that would soon be framed and held on their walls at home.

Soon after the graduates received their awards, they had the opportunity to leave the hall and start celebrating with their friends and family. The atmosphere outside the graduation stage was enthralling! Warm hugs, laughter and happy chatter filled the halls. After having their refreshments, graduates and guests dispersed to take their photographs with the official photographer for the event, Ede and Ravenscroft.

In addition, a photo booth with various props were open for graduates, allowing them to take fun-filled photographs with their loved ones and in addition to the usual, formal photographs taken on graduation day.

“The times are changing”, stated Anton Dominque, the CMO of London School of Marketing. “The secret behind the event’s success is that we were able to adjust to the needs of the graduates. Students from all over the world arrived in London for the sole reason of attending their graduation ceremony. We wanted the ceremony to be one that they will remember for years to come.”

The event which played host to a total of 850 graduates and 1500 guests was truly an event to remember. Syed Kabir, valedictorian for the graduation ceremony this year stated the following, “The graduation ceremony was everything we hoped for and more. A graduation ceremony is a milestone for all us graduates and LSM provided us the opportunity to celebrate in a truly memorable manner!”
