Degrees are conferred by the University at a ceremony in the Senate House known as a Congregation. People due to take a degree (graduands) are presented for their degrees to the Vice-Chancellor (or deputy) by an officer of the College known as the Praelector.
Dates of Congregations for 2015-17 are listed in the Reporter.
To be presented at any congregation other than General Admission please print and fill out the Degree Application form when you have decided on the date and method by which you intend to proceed to your degree. Lists of candidates have to be submitted to the University in advance of each Congregation.
You cannot be awarded a degree until you have satisfied the necessary academic conditions. In addition, the following College Regulations apply to all students who wish to be presented for a degree:
9.4.6: Undergraduates shall deposit with the Bursar, earlier than three weeks before the General Admissions at which they intend to graduate, a sum estimated by the Bursar to cover the amount of their final bill up to graduation, less the Advance Deposit. The Bursar shall inform the Praelector of the names of all Undergraduates whose estimated account has not been paid.
9.5.1: A Junior Member whose College account has not been paid, or who has not paid the College the amount stated under Regulation 9.4.6, shall not proceed to a degree without the approval of Council.
