Student Orators

Student Orators

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

Winter 2022

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

If you are chosen, you'll provide an 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.

We welcome applications from all students attending the Congregations. Academic performance is not taken into account when we choose the Orator.


The first stage of the application process is a short application form. We will then invite those successful in the first stage, to provide a 60 second application video.
