Degree Days

The dates of forthcoming Degree Days are provided below and are usually also listed at the back of the College Record. Candidates are asked to give at least 28 days' notice of their intention to collect their degree(s).

The University imposes a strict quota on the number of graduands that can be presented at any one degree ceremony, so it is important to arrange this in good time (this quota does not apply to those taking degrees in absence). Some dates are very popular, and therefore unless you make application well in advance, it is possible that you will be asked to accept another less heavily subscribed date.

Applications must be in writing to Mrs Jane Vicat, using the form at the bottom of this page. Applications cannot be accepted or places reserved over the telephone.

Forthcoming dates

The dates of forthcoming Degree Ceremonies are available in the following document. Ceremonies  take place in the Sheldonian Theatre unless otherwise stated. Cereomonies start at 11 a.m. All Graduands should be at Univ by 9.30 am.
