The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) Graduation is one of the most important days in the RVC calendar. It is a chance for graduands, guests and staff of the RVC to come together to celebrate all that has been achieved, to reflect on the years spent with us and to look forward to bright and exciting futures.

Graduation will take place on Monday 15th July 2019 at Royal Festival Hall, London's leading classical music venue located on the banks of the River Thames at the heart of the Southbank Centre.
