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 2014-2015 are  21 March (MA congregation), 25 April, 16 May and 18 July (exact times 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 24 June 2015.

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, and there are also notes from the Proctors for the guidance of graduands.

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