Bookings for degree ceremonies may be made through the Steward’s Assistant.
• A candidate may be presented in person for only one degree at each ceremony. This will normally be the superior of the degrees for which he or she is eligible. A candidate may, however, take other degrees in absence at the same ceremony when a degree is taken in person.
• Once a candidate’s name has been entered he or she may not withdraw from the ceremony. If a candidate is unable to be present, the degree will be conferred in absentia.
• The college may not present candidates for degrees if any debts are known to be outstanding to the College or the University. If in doubt, please check with the Steward’s Office on 01865 276251.
The appropriate gown hire form will be sent to you for completion once you have been allocated a place at a ceremony.
A final programme will be emailed to candidates two weeks before the ceremony.
Degrees can be taken in person or in absentia
Taking a Degree Without Attending a Ceremony (In Absentia)
It is possible to take a degree without being present at the ceremony. If you wish to have a degree conferred in this manner, you must notify the Steward’s Assistant a month before the date of the intended degree ceremony. To make arrangements to take a degree "in absentia", please contact Helen Camunas-Lopez, the Steward’s Assistant.
