Graduation / Degree Congregation

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.
