Further information regarding degree ceremonies in Lent and Easter Term 2021 will be updated in due course, once we receive guidance from the University.
For ‘in person’ ceremonies, please note that the times detailed above relate to when the ceremony at Senate House is due to begin, not the time that Magdalene candidates will be presented, and are provided for reference only. The ceremony is split into several sessions 30-40 minutes long, and unfortunately, we will not know until about a week before each ceremony what time Magdalene candidates will be presented. If you apply to graduate in person at one of these ceremonies, you will be emailed as soon as we know the details.
If you are intending to take a Degree for which you have received approval from the Board of Graduate Studies, please get in touch with the Praelector’s Secretary in the Alumni and Development Office well in advance of your preferred ceremony date, applications must be received by the application deadline before the relevant congregation.
