Student Orators

Student Orators

Student Orator is the name given to the graduate who makes the closing speech at their graduation ceremony.

July 2017

We appoint one Student Orator for each Congregation ceremony. The orator speaks at their ceremony on behalf of their cohort of students.

If you are chosen as Student Orator, you'll provide a invaluable contribution to the day. You'll help to make it unique and memorable for everyone there. It will be an unforgettable experience for you - and one which will enhance your CV.

Student Orators are awarded a certificate in recognition of their contribution, and a studio photography package with our official photographers free of charge.


Applications for the July 2017 Congregations are now closed but we are still looking for Student Orators for the following ceremony:

If you are graduating in this ceremony and are interested in being Student Orator, please email the Congregations Team

Auditions will be held on 9, 10, 11 and 12 May in the King's Gate Building.
