Saturday 20 May 2023, 10.30 – for students who had booked onto a ceremony but it was postponed due to the pandemic

The postponement of degree ceremonies in 2020 and 2021 caused by COVID-19 has caused a backlog of students who still need to confer their degree at a ceremony. The backlog is being addressed for 2021 leavers who still need to confer their degrees and for students who had their ceremonies postponed, with these candidates being contacted directly by the College to inform them of their booking process.

If you finished your degree before June 2020 then you are classed as a ‘historic’ graduand. While we are addressing the backlog of students caused by the pandemic, we are only able to add historic graduands on to a waiting list.  A place cannot be guaranteed at this stage.  Please contact college.office@seh.ox.ac.uk for further information.

However, should you wish to confer your degree (or an MA) in absentia please contact college.office@seh.ox.ac.uk for an Application Form.  Bookings for degrees to be taken in absentia must be received no later than 30 days before a ceremony is due to take place.
