Graduation

You are here

Any member of Homerton College who has fulfilled the appropriate examination and residence requirements may proceed at Congregation. Degree ceremonies are held at the Senate House on various dates throughout the year; although Homerton College does not attend every ceremony, only those listed below.

Your degree will not be officially awarded to you until you have participated in a Congregation of the Regent House, either in person or in absence.  Your degree certificate and official University transcript will only be issued once your degree has been conferred, if received in absence this will be posted to you a few weeks after the ceremony date.

The Congregation held on 1st July is known as General Admission, when most undergraduates proceed to their first degree at the end of their final term.  

The Registry or your degree committee informs higher degree students (M.Phil, Ph.D., M.St and Ed.D) when they have been approved for their degrees and asks them to contact the College to make the necessary arrangements to have their degrees conferred at Congregation, please do this by emailing the Praelectors Secretary tutorial@homerton.cam.ac.uk .  We do try to contact higher degree students once they become eligible, a registration email is sent from the Tutorial Office to all eligible graduands six weeks prior to the congregation inviting them to register.  Please note that higher degree students are not automatically entered for graduation, they must register for a particular Congregation, so please look out for the registration email.  The pass list for M.Ed students is released late November; the College will contact eligible graduands  end of January inviting them to the M.Ed ceremony usually held in April.   

MA Congregations are held in March or early April.  The Praelectors' Secretary will contact all eligible graduates on their preferred email address by end of January.  Graduates who are eligible for an MA will have held a BA for six years and a term after matriculation. Further details regarding eligibility are available from student.registry@admin.cam.ac.uk

Please note the College will not put forward anyone for graduation who has not settled their College and University bills.

If you wish to put your name forward to receive your degree at any Congregation you will need to contact the Praelector’s Secretary in the Tutorial Office.

Guest entry to the Senate House ceremony is by ticket only.  We are allocated three guest tickets per graduand.  Please see the FAQ page on this website.
