QF Convocation

An annual ceremony celebrating graduates from all universities in Education City.



QF Convocation marks the culmination, commemoration, and celebration of the academic and personal journeys of our students. It’s a special opportunity for all of our graduates to come together, celebrate each other’s accomplishments, reflect on their experiences, and envision the next chapter of their story. This year’s virtual event is dedicated to the Class of 2020 and 2021.

Join the Celebration

Over the past few years, our graduates embarked on a special journey to bring positive, meaningful change to the world around them. QF Convocation marks an important milestone in that journey – one that demonstrates the hard work, dedication, and passion our graduates have shown toward acquiring the necessary skills and knowledge needed to build a better future.

QF Convocation this year reflects the unshakeable resilience, hope, and vibrancy of our graduating classes. We’re hosting an immersive and dynamic virtual gathering on 27 May 2021, sharing vivid personal stories and heartfelt messages from our students, their parents, and the broader community. Join us!
