Graduation in person 18 July 2020

18 Jul 2020
Location: Churchill College
Start time: 10:30
End time: 16:00

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the University have confirmed that there will be no in-person graduation ceremonies this year. All bookings for Cambridge in-person congregations are therefore suspended. However, you may apply to graduate in absence instead. 

Please bear with us with respect to responding  to queries at this time.

If you hold a Cambridge BA, you may proceed to the MA not less than six years from the end of your first term of residence, providing that you have held your BA degree for at least two years. Once you have received confirmation from the Tutorial Office that you are eligible you may register to receive your MA degree in person or in absence.

On the days of degree Congregations, the Praelector hosts a lunch for those taking degrees in person. Lunch is free for all graduates. If you wish to bring any guests to the lunch the cost is £26 per head.

A timetable of the day will be e-mailed to you approximately one week before the congregation, when timings of the ceremony are known.

Please note: Bookings will close 2 weeks prior to the graduation.

For all enquiries please contact: stephanie.cook@chu.cam.ac.uk

Please note that if your degree has not yet been approved, any confirmation you receive from Churchill College will be subject to your degree being approved by your Department at least one week before the chosen ceremony date; please also note that the College is not informed of this directly, so you must take responsibility for checking that you have been approved to graduate in time).
