​​Convocation is more than just a formal ceremony for the conferral of degrees and diplomas; it’s the recognition of a longstanding tradition whereby the University community – students, faculty, staff and alumni – applaud your achievements.  At AKU’s Convocation ceremonies, as you look forward to beginning the newest chapter in your journey, you will celebrate with your family, friends and class fellows those days and long nights of study and hard work and be welcomed as our newest alumni.

The University awards graduate and undergraduate degrees and diplomas at ceremonies in Kenya, Pakistan, Tanzania, Uganda and the United Kingdom.
