Once you have met all the academic and residence requirements for a Cambridge Degree, the degree is formally awarded at a ceremony in the Senate House. Degrees are awarded at one of eight other degree ceremonies that take place on Saturdays throughout the year. You do not have to be present for the degree to be awarded; you may apply for the degree to be awarded in absentia.
Booking for the Degree Congregation & Lunch / Dress Code / Academical Dress Hire: for full information outlining the procedure for degree ceremonies, and a booking form, please use the attached PDFs (Guidelines for Graduation, Graduation Booking Form).
It is important that you make your booking for a Congregation in good time, and certainly no later than two weeks before the date of the Congregation at which you wish to take your degree. Correspondence and any queries should be directed to the Deanery.
