Candidates, other than BAs, who are suitably qualified by examination, residence and having discharged their College accounts may be admitted to their degrees at any Congregation of the Regent House.  The dates for 2016-2017 are Saturdays 26 November (2.00pm) 28 January 2017 (2.00pm), 25 February (2.00pm), 25 March (MA congregation) (11.00am), 29 April (11.00am), 20 May (10.00am) and Friday 21 July (10.00am) (the ceremony starting times are given above, exact times for graduands are known less than one week before each congregation, and graduands will be notified by the College).

General Admission to LL.M., M.Eng., M.Sci., Vet M.B., Mus. B., B.A., B.Ed., and B.Th. degrees will take place on Wednesday 28 June 2017.

Graduands may be admitted to their degrees either in person or in absence. If you would like to proceed then please complete, in either case, a written request which must be submitted to the Praelector at least two weeks before the intended Congregation.

Once your request has been received by the Praelector then you will receive confirmation of the date and details of the graduation. It should not be assumed that simply asking to graduate will secure a place; written confirmation (in the form of an email from the Praelector’s Secretary) is necessary.

Graduation at Cambridge has proceeded relatively unchanged for several hundred years, and there are various rules and regulations concerning the dress code. Specific rules apply for ‘General Admission’, where undergraduates receive their first degree.

Information concerning degree ceremonies is also available on the University’s website
