Students and staff will attend GCU London’s graduation ceremony at Christ Church, Spitalfields, on Wednesday, November 9.

They will be joined by Jo Malone MBE, responsible for creating some of the world’s most-loved fragrances, and alumnus Dr Obinna Anuruegbe, whose achievements are being recognised by the University.

Ms Malone will be appointed as an Honorary Professor of GCU and presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her outstanding achievements in the luxury sector within the UK and internationally.

Dr Anuruegbe will receive the GCU London Alumnus of the Year Award for being an individual who embodies GCU’s commitment to the common good and who has used his expertise as a medical doctor to immerse himself in life-changing charity work to support those most in need around the world.

Professor Antony Morgan, Dean of GCU London, said: “I am privileged to welcome such distinguished award winners to GCU London. They bring a wealth of professional knowledge and experience. Graduation day is always a day of celebration and a highlight of the GCU London calendar, and I am delighted that Ms Malone and Dr Anuruegbe are joining our graduates, their family and friends on this special day.”   

The formal celebration will begin with the traditional academic procession of GCU academics, award winners, members of the University staff, the Senate, the Court, Senior Officers, the Vice-Chancellor and the Bedellus from the GCU campus in Fashion Street to Christ Church.
