Thank you to all graduating students who joined us at this year’s CIM Graduation Ceremony on Saturday 16 November 2019. The ceremony took place at Central Hall in Westminster, London. Graduating students were joined by their guests to watch them grace the stage and celebrate all their hard work and success.

CIM’s Graduation Ceremony celebrated students graduating in the Professional Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, CIM Marketing Leadership Programme, Diploma in Professional Marketing and Digital Diploma in Professional Marketing who completed their last exam in December 2018 and April/July 2019.

During the Ceremony we presented our four Top Student certificates, which are awarded to those students with the highest mark worldwide in each of the four different Diplomas.

Congratulations to you all on your hard work and achievements.


  • Can CIM help me with my visa application?

    Visa applications are the responsibility of the graduate. CIM is strictly unable to provide funding, visa letters or involvement in applications. CIM does not issue any special documentation to graduates or their guests in connection with visa applications to attend the Graduation Ceremony.

  • How much are guest tickets and how many guests can I invite?

    Graduates are free to attend the Graduation Ceremony. Guest tickets are at a fee of £35 per person (including children over eight). 

    Please note that children under eight (including babies), are not permitted into the auditorium while the ceremony is taking place but are able to wait with a guardian in the cafeteria until the ceremony ends.

  • Can I cancel my guest ticket?

    Guest tickets are non-refundable four weeks prior to the event. The last day for refunds is 11 October 2019. Refund requests should be made to events.organiser@cim.co.uk.

  • Who should I contact about special requirements?

    If you or your guests have any special requirements, you should inform the Graduation team of these during the booking process. Please note that graduates normally ascend and descend the stage via a short set of steps. If this is problematic, please email us at events.organiser@cim.co.uk

    Please note that the venue is fully accessible.

  • What shall I do about my gown and photography?

    You will be able to purchase the hire of your gown and photography directly with Ede & Ravenscroft once you receive your Graduation Ceremony invitation via email. Further information on how to do this can be found in the ‘Other’ section.

    Academic dress is imperative if you are a graduate. Without a gown, you will not be permitted into the auditorium to take part in your graduation.

    Photography is optional and can be purchased in advance of the Ceremony, or on the day itself.
