We were thrilled to start last week at London’s Southbank Centre, celebrating with our students as they enjoyed their graduation ceremony. Bright sunlight provided the perfect backdrop as students and their families buzzed around the Royal Festival Hall.
Hosted by Universty of the Arts London’s Chancellor, Kwame Kwei-Armah, the ceremony itself was an excellent opportunity to look back on the hard work of all our students, and congratulate them for their huge success.
Also honored at the ceremony were artists Mariko Mori and Frank Bowling, who this year donated ten scholarships for students applying to Chelsea’s MA Fine Art over the next five years. Both became Honorary Fellows at the event, and were followed by a moving speech from Jheni Arboine who spoke on behalf of the student body.
Below are some pictures from the day which we hope you will enjoy. You can catch some other snaps on our Instagram account: @chelseaUAL.
