So that we can ensure that all Members of the Churchill College community stay healthy and safe, things will look a little different when you next come to College. But you can find everything you need to know on our new Coronavirus Guidance page From the latest research from the University to what you should do if you have symptoms, and from the provision of College services to minimising the risk of transmission, you'll find all the answers to your questions here.
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.
The Praelector for Churchill College is Matthew Ireland. Administrative assistance to the Praelector is provided by Stephanie Cook in the Tutorial Office.

Transcripts for degrees awarded based on assessments modified as a result of COVID-19 will include brief wording explaining that the candidate undertook alternative assessments, and provide a link to a fuller explanation of the nature of the assessment, hosted on the CamData website.
Paper copies of certificates and transcripts for everyone who has graduated in absence during the lockdown period will be produced and posted as soon as staff are able to return to the workplace. Further copies may be ordered once this service is available again. A service that allows you to access your official transcript electronically remains in place and has been enhanced to include an image of your graduation certificate. This subscription service to Digitary allows you to share documents on-line with other organisations such as employers or other educational institutions.
