The Royal Veterinary College Graduation summer 2016

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 Wednesday 13th July 2016.

Graduation is at Central Hall Westminster, close to Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, St James’s Park, Buckingham Palace and the River Thames.
